6 Kindle DX
Released with a lot of hype, Amazon Kindle DX offers large-screen, highly readable text and flexibility The size and weight differences will also be worth considering for some people. The Kindle DX is likely too large to be carried comfortably in most purses but it fits fine in a brief case, backpack or laptop case. The Kindle DX is a whole lot easier to read for extended periods of time than smaller devices, especially for those of us whose eyes are weaker than they once were or, frankly, for anyone who reads a lot and the smaller type of most devices just becomes somewhat tiresome. The decision will come down to what an individual needs in an eBook reader and the contents of his wallet. The half-pound weight difference shouldn’t make much difference for carrying it around but could make it a two-handed reader for many people.
