With the 2009 debut of the Kindle DX, Amazon introduced the largest dedicated electronic reader at the time. The 9.7-inch display of the Kindle DX is dramatically larger than the 6-inch screen on the Kindle 2, the predecessor to the DX. Also new for the DX was the "Experimental" menu, which offers Internet browsing, playback of MP3 music files, and an option to turn text to computer speech. The Kindle DX allows users the chance to browse both the Kindle store on Amazon as well as most Internet websites.
Power the Kindle DX on and wait for your book menu (the home screen) to load.
Press the "Menu" button above the directional pad.
Select the "Turn Wireless On" option by pressing the center of the directional pad if the wireless is currently turned off. (If the wireless is already on, you will see a "Turn Wireless Off" option.)
Click the Menu button again if you turned wireless on in the last step. If the wireless was already on, proceed to the next step.
Click the down arrow on the directional pad until "Experimental" is underlined. Press the center of the directional pad to select the Experimental menu.
Click the "Launch Web Browser" option in the Experimental menu.
Click the down arrow on the directional pad to navigate through the pre-loaded bookmarks that appear. Bookmarks include Amazon, Wikipedia, Google and Yahoo. Click the center of the directional pad to select the bookmark of your choice.
Type search terms or Internet addresses into the provided search box or address bar using the Kindle DX keyboard at the bottom of the device.
Navigate to the search command on any of the Internet browsers using the directional arrows. Press the center of the directional pad to start the search.
Navigate up and down search results pages or Web pages using the directional pad on the Kindle DX. Select or click on items by clicking the center of the directional pad.
