Jun 19th 2009 6:54PM i have the Kindle 2 and the DX. the reviewer's whining about the orientation sensor is fairly over the top... you set it on the preferences screen where you set type size, very easy to get to, and it's not like you're going to want to change your preference every other page.
the keyboard isn't that godawful, but if you're planning/wanting to type massive notes as a student, i would look elsewhere, this isn't the device. a little store searching or light web browsing isn't that bad, for how much i actually use it i'm not up in arms.
the size is the thing that got me. totally prefer it over the Kindle2 but it is heavier. for some reason i was thinking the DX screen seemed more contrasty/sharper for a couple hours but I figured out what it was... I'm one of those people that use pretty small fonts as I like a lot of info on a page for any kind of device/monitor. the DX screen is so big I was using a slightly larger font but still getting more words per page... just seemed more contrasty, definitely a better reading experience.
the remaining issue for the kindle is content... newspapers need to format their content for the Kindle (or any ebook reader)... their current format is not ebook friendly, it quite frankly sucks. and the actual list of newspapers and magazines is pretty slim. i would dearly love to subscribe to some specialty or academic magazines like Foreign Affairs or Science... not available.
