The new Graphite Kindle DX with its 9.7″ display is currently the latest generation of the Kindle family.  With this latest version comes a new look and some cool features.  Here’s some of the new features you’ll find on the latest DX:

Social Networks

Now you can share what you’re reading with friends, family, and other readers around the world by posting meaningful passages to social networks like Facebook and Twitter directly from your Kindle.  Want to post or tweet about a great new book or a newspaper quote?  When you highlight or create a note in your book or periodical, you can easily share it with your social network.

Popular Highlights

Now you can see what millions of Kindle readers think are the most interesting passages in your books.  If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book along with the total number of people who have highlighted it.  Now it’s easier to review, remember, and learn more from the books you read.

Collections

Need a better way to organize their growing Kindle libraries?  Now with Collections, you can organize your  Kindle library into multiple categories to help keep track of your  personal libraries and allow for easy access to any book you’re looking for. Collections give you the flexibility to add an item to as many collections as needed. For example, you can add the same book to your “History” and “My Favorite Authors” collections.

PDF Pan and Zoom

Zoom into any area of a PDF up to 300% and pan around to more easily view small print and detailed tables and graphics.

Font Improvements

Amazon has added two new larger font sizes and sharper fonts for an even more comfortable reading experience.

Password Protection

With new password protection functionality, you can choose to lock your Kindle automatically when you’re not using it.

The Kindle seems to be improving with every new generation and it’ll only continue to get better as it tries to maintain itself as the leader in e-book reading devices.
