This is normally $379, so it's a $120 savings. It's a favorite of some of us who use it for PDFs and books with complex illustrations with small print. It uses the same Pearl screen as the Kindle 3 and Kindle Touch but my entire Kindle 3 fits into the screen area of the DX, so it's easier on the eyes, though obviously it'll weigh more.
It has NO WiFi capability and uses only 3G (Cellular network access), with which you can download books just about anywhere without looking for a WiFi spot -- and the experimental web browser through that 3G capability is still usable, free, for U.S. citizens and customers in about 61 countries, which Amazon UK lists and I reference at this page, which has more information and the link to the Amazon UK table.
With a discount this big, I don't know what the future of this particular model is, but many of us have depended on it for comfortable e-Ink reading of PDFs (which can be fully rotated and zoomed using rectangular areas).
Here are working images of my own DX (I had the DX US only and now have the DX Graphite US/Int'l).
