Summary: The Kindle DX’s hardware, like the Kindle 2, is a welcome update, and its larger screen, built-in accelerometer, and added storage space all sweeten the deal. However, its price of $489 is hard to swallow. Those seeking an e-book reader that can fit into a purse or small bag would do best to save $200 and go with Amazon’s Kindle 2. But those looking for a larger display and larger images—and don’t mind the extra weight—would be well served with the Kindle DX.
Pros: Expanded crisp E-Ink display, Accelerometer for adjusting screen orientation, Expanded storage, Fast wireless downloads,
Cons: Expensive, Bulkier than the Kindle 2, Some popular books not available, Battery not user-replaceable,
Excerpt: The original Kindle launched in 2007, with the Amazon Kindle 2 following in 2009, joined later by its bigger brother the DX. The big brother of the e-reader series boasts a larger 9.7-inch screen and added PDF support.
