Amazon Kindle DX (Graphite) review

 

What a difference a display can make. All it took was turning on the Amazon Kindle DX (Graphite) second-generation large-format e-reader to see that Amazon's claims of a higher-contrast display than its predecessor were true.

Without spending some quality time reading from the Amazon Kindle DX (Graphite) in sunlit conditions it's impossible to give a definitive thumbs up to Amazon's updated e-reader. But on first impressions, the new Amazon Kindle DX is a sure-fire winner.

Amazon Kindle DX review

 

Amazon says its new e-reader will allow college students to easily carry and access textbooks, and says the Amazon Kindle DX is ideal for larger-format periodicals such as newspapers and magazines.

The Amazon Kindle DX is not so much a revolutionary new addition to Amazon's product line as it is a perhaps useful niche product for academia. And it's too early to tell whether Amazon will be able to penetrate the market enough with its dedicated...

Amazon Kindle DX

 

This is the larger version of the Kindle (reviewed around six weeks ago) A lot of the features are the same and should you already have some Kindle books you can view them on either unit, the main advantage more words per page.

Again for anyone learning/studying the built in dictionary is great for those who need definitions for unknown words

Amazon Kindle DX (International edition) review

 

When we reviewed the Kindle 2 almost a year ago, it was the only size available. But Amazon has released a much larger version to the UK called the Kindle DX. Like the original Kindle, however, the DX has to be purchased directly from Amazon in the US...

Larger display makes reading an even more pleasurable experience than on the Kindle 2

It's bulkier, heavier and more expensive than the Kindle 2 and the keyboard is all kinds of awful. More worryingly, it's a similar size and only slightly less expensive than the imminent iPad

Amazon - Kindle DX Global Wireless Edition

 

The Kindle DX Global Wireless Edition is a large device. It manages to offer a screen that measures 9.7-inches across diagonal corners, giving you more reading area than you'd find in a normal paperback book. This ...

The Amazon Kindle DX Global Wireless Edition is just that bit too large and unwieldy for our taste, and we don't like that we can't use the Web browser as we aren't in the US, nor that the on-board dictionary is American English. The large screen is...

Amazon Kindle DX

 

The DX's 9.7in screen makes all the difference, but the cost is high and UK buyers still don't get the full Kindle experience.

Spend time with the 9.7in Kindle DX and your won't ever want to go back to a 6in e-book reader but blimey you've to pay a hefty price to be paid for such luxury. If money is no object, you won't regret the outlay, but you may want to consider waiting...

Amazon Kindle DX review

 

The Kindle DX will make consumers think hard before buying one (especially since highly functional netbooks can be had for substantially less). But it is also a very capable device that can benefit from a broadened scope. The more multipurpose Kindles...

Amazon Kindle DX

 

Amazon's Kindle DX is bigger and bolder than the original but there's still no UK release date in sight

Large, sharp screen; easy wireless shopping; long battery life

Too large for commuting; fussy menu; pointless auto-rotate

The Kindle DX has a lot to live up to. At its grand unveiling in New York in February, Amazon's chief executive, Jeff Bezos, ­suggested this large ebook reader for textbooks and periodicals (costing $489, or £296) would boost ­students' grades, kill...
