“In the gadget world, smaller is usually better, but not so for Amazon’s Kindle. Unveiled Wednesday, the large-format Kindle DX is even more of a pleasure to hold and read than its smaller predecessor, but its flaws are still aplenty.
Amazon launched its next-generation e-reader here Wednesday. With a screen that measures 9.7 inches diagonally — two-and-a-half times the size of the current-gen Kindle 2 — the DX is aimed squarely at penetrating for the first time the $9.8 billion textbook market, as well offering some life support for the struggling business of subscription-based electronic newspapers.”

If you just picked up the Kindle 2, you are probably not a very happy person. Amazon just released the Kindle DX, roughly 2.5 times the size and only $130 more. It has a 9.7″ 1200×824 screen @ 150 dpi, and 16 levels of grey, and 3.3GB of storage, all adding up to a much bigger device than it’s little brother. You will need to wait until the summer to get your hands on it, but unless the tiny size of the Kindle 2 is a good thing for you, you are best off waiting for the DX.
