On Wednesday in New York Amazon unveiled a new version of its Kindle with a bigger screen something the company hopes will make newspapers and magazine content easier to read.

The new device also has more storage than either of its predecessors. The Kindle DX can store 3,500 books more than double of what the Kindle 2 can. Like the Kindle 2 the Kindle DX also has 3G wireless capability.

Along with the launch of the Kindle DX came the announcement of a number of partnerships. The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Washington Post will offer the DX at a reduced price to readers who live in areas where home-delivery is not available and who sign up for a long-term subscription to the Kindle edition of the newspapers. On the education side a number of universities will make Kindle DX available to students during their fall semesters later this year.
