How Much Are Kindle DX Textbooks and Newspapers Gonna Cost?

Jeff Bezos and Arthur Sulzberger talked about reduced newspaper prices for Kindle DX—you'll notice we haven't mentioned 'em. That's because they're not announcing what they are 'til later in the summer, and we're gonna have to wait on the publishers to spill. That goes for textbooks too, but don't expect 'em to be cheap, from what we gather.

The reduced "newspaper" pricing for the Kindle DX is going to be part of a package with a "long-term" subscription to one of the newspapers—I'd guess two years—for "readers who live in areas where home-delivery is not available" according to the press release. So no one who lives in a real city, in other words.

That'll keep 'em afloat. [Kindle DX on Giz]
