Most of you will be familiar with the Amazon Kindle and all the bells and whistles that come with it, but apart from being bigger, how does the Kindle DX differ from other Kindles and is the extra price tag really justified?
Like all 3rd generation Kindles, the DX employs the e-Ink Pearl technology that make the words on the screen appear as similar as possible to printed paper, making the Kindle DX reading experience as natural as possible. It will not cause strain to your eyes and the lack of glare makes it very easy to read in sunlight. The contrast on the DX is even more advanced than the regular Kindle.
With a screen size of 9.7 inches your Kindle DX is noticeably larger than your regular 6inch Kindle screen. Reading those reports, newspaper articles, analyzing graphs and studying pictures is far easier because you get all the details with nothing cut off. You also get to read the stories and articles in perspective. One user even reported that they loved their DX because the larger screen size didn't truncate lines of poetry. They could now fully comprehend the emotion of the poet and read the poetry in the context that was intended.
Your Kindle DX also comes with 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity for browsing and downloading 'on-the-go'. No more having to stay behind in hotels as you wait for important documents to be sent to you via the hotel Wi-Fi before a big meeting. Simply pack up and download them on the way. You can have entire novels sent in under 60 seconds from virtually anywhere in the world. This 3G connectivity comes as a part of the Kindle DX package and there are no expensive monthly fees or downloaded data charges to pay.
Your Kindle DX can store up to 3,500 books and although no longer need to use the computer to upload books, materials and system upgrades, you do have this option if you wish thanks to full USB compatibility.
One of the biggest advantages of the Kindle is that it has a built in PDF reader, making reading and editing those important documents a breeze. The talk to text feature is also one that sets the Amazon e-readers apart from other brands. It also supports MP3, TXT, Audible, HTML, DOC, JPEG, GIF, PNG, AZW formats among others.
As great as the Amazon Kindle DX is, there is one drawback that some users found. At 18.9 ounces it is a little heavier than your regular Kindle, which can make it more difficult for one-handed readers to operate smoothly. Unfortunately this is one of the unavoidable drawbacks to having a bigger device.
When it comes to battery life, without using the wireless capabilities full-time, you will get 2-3 weeks of battery life, compared with 7 days with the wireless connectivity on.
The price of the Kindle DX is something that stands between it and potential purchasers. It is currently priced at around $370 putting it firmly in the realm of the iPad and similar e-readers, but the DX does not have the level of versatility at this stage that the iPad does because you can not use the different applications the way that you can with the Apple product. This is where you have to consider what you are buying your Kindle DX for. Do you want the best device for serious reading or do you want a multifunctional gadget?
Amazon is renowned for their attention to detail and their Kindle e-readers are hands down the best for user experience and authentic readability. The major difference between the 6 inch Kindle and the DX is the price, but then the DX is designed for those who are serious about their reading and the quality of their information. Add to this the excellent Amazon support that comes with your DX and the fact that there are no other ongoing charges for your 3G connectivity and it is a very well-priced specialist reading device.
