Amazon.com says its Kindle DX e-book reader will start shipping on June 10. "The Kindle DX is currently available for pre-order and all orders are prioritized on a first come, first served basis," the company said Monday in a statement.

Not to much to add at this point other than we'll post a review on the 10th. In the meantime, you can check out our lengthy first take of the jumbo-screen e-reader.
