Amazon Kindle DX Review - TechAmok

Amazon Kindle DX Review - [gadgets]
05:12 AM EDT - Jul,12 2009 - post a comment

Hardware Secrets posted a review on the Amazon Kindle DX (Kindle 2) . The Kindle DX has a 9.7inch diagonal display and measures 10.4" x 7.2" x 0.38" (26.4 x 18.3 x 0.96 cm).
The DX sports many design improvements, including better placement of speakers and buttons. Unfortunately those improvements don't extend to the keyboard which is much worse than previous Kindle keyboards. The added screen size means more to view at once and fewer pages to turn. The native PDF support is a big plus.

Amazon continues to create readers with a wonderfully sleek design and good view ability. The availability of over 300,000 titles and the slick way those books, newspapers, and magazines can be downloaded is still a big enticement for an avid reader. Although the technology is wonderful and the Kindle DX is an excellent reading device, at USD 489 it is very expensive. In fact, you can purchase a computer for that price. Amazon was wise to lower the price of the Kindle 2 to USD 299, to make it more attractive.

While our Pros may outnumber our Cons, the Kindle DX is not for everyone. Gadget freaks who must have the latest and the greatest, and those who need to view PDFs, should look at the DX. Most average readers who want to go digital, will find that the Kindle 2 is easier to handle and carry, and has a more acceptable price point.
