The most obvious difference with the Kindle DX is the screen size which is 2.5 times the size of the original Kindle. That has to be one of the major benefits of choosing the DX model because it makes it far easier to read books and even broadsheet newspapers.
This is going to be really useful for those who tend to read large print books and textbooks which incorporate a lot of detail on a page unlike a novel.
With a larger screen you can read books, documents and indeed websites without breaking off in the middle of sentences because of the size restrictions with the traditional Kindle.
The DX provides great support for PDF files transferred to it. You will also find that it is easy to transfer documents from your computer which again has to be a real benefit for students of all ages.
One of the added functions, which I really like is the ability to rotate the screen from portrait to landscape.
You also get a larger storage capacity than the traditional Kindle. Whilst other devices, such as the Apple iPad, offer more features than the Kindle DX I think the e-Ink screen is still going to appeal to a lot of people.
This unique technology makes this device very popular with those who want a relaxing reading experience which doesn’t strain the eyes like other devices.
Clearly the Kindle DX is more expensive than the standard Kindle. It’s actually more expensive, at the time of writing, than many other eBook readers on the market. However, personally I think some of the added features and functionaility help make up for that.
Overall, if are considering buying an eBook reader that is as comfortable as possible on the eyes then the Kindle DX could be the one for you. The e-Ink display technology together with a screen which is much larger than other eBook readers, you are going to find that eBooks really will look more like real books.
However, if you concerned about price then you might want to consider comparing the Kindle DX to the other Kindles including the Kindle 3G and Wifi version.
