Amazon Kindle Review: Kindle 2 Vs Kindle DX

Here’s a simplified Amazon Kindle review and comparison between Kindle2 and Kindle DX

Kindle DX is not yet available, so if you would like  to purchase it you can  place your order and join the line….or if you just want to check it out, go to Amazon’s website.

I am not sure what the goal is here with the Kindle DX since it is not much different from Kindle 2 in terms of function. The only notable differences are  size, native PDF, content capacity, and auto-rotating screen.

Up to the time of this post, we are not yet sure if ads will be allow to  appear in periodicals and newspapers.

We will keep you posted on that, since its something we are expecting to see if not now later…I really don’t think Amazon can continue to ignore it, since competitors are lining up for that very reason.
