When it comes to making the choice as to what e-book reader is right for you, the first thing that many people realize is that there is a whole lot of choices. Which one to choose though really depends on what you are looking for in a device. Perhaps you would like the ability to store up to 3,500 e-books on one device or maybe you would like a reader whose batteries won’t die before you are finished reading. Or perhaps you would like one that does not require you hooking it up to your computer every time you would like to add to your library. If you are like most people, these are the things that you are looking for and what that means is that you are in need of a Kindle DX.
This latest version of the popular e-book reader has gone through a drastic overhaul while still maintain many of the great features that people have grown to love about it. It still features the automatically rotating display that is composed of Amazon’s e-ink design. This new version though, unlike it predecessor is capable of supporting PDF files without the need for an online conversion.
This PDF support has been a much anticipated update due to the popularity of this file format with regards to online reading material. Of course you cannot help but notice the Amazon Kindle DX’s increased display size because unlike its 6 inch predecessor, this display is an amazing 9.7 inches. That makes reading those books a much simpler process, especially if your eyes are not what they used to be. Many people have heard that the new device is being released and they are searching all over the web for Amazon Kindle DX reviews, but the truth is that if you like the previous models, then you will definitely love this one.
Kindle DX Vs Kindle 2.0
In the world of e-book readers, you have a lot of choices to select from but what name has stood out from the crowd since its inception and that is the Amazon Kindle DX. Of course there is always plenty of room for improvement as Amazon has shown with their recently release of their Amazon Kindle DX. Let us compare for a moment the Kindle DX vs. Kindle 2.0 models. This version of the reader features a much larger 9.7 inch display using the popular e-ink design. It is also capable of storing up to 3,500 different books and includes the much anticipated native PDF support. The display is auto-orientating so it will adjust as you move it around. It still hold the popular 3G wireless technology which allows you free access to download the books you are wanting.
On the other hand though, the standard model only has a 6 inch display which is auto-orienting. It can only hold up to 1,500 books and does not support PDF natively as it requires them to be converted online before downloading them to the device. One of the main reasons why the standard Kindle has not been as popular was due to its lacking ability to support the PDF files which can be found all over the internet. With the release of the Kindle DX though, this issue can be considered a thing of the past.
It is important to remember though that the display is known as e-ink. What this is, is it is a specially designed display that is capable of 16 shades of grey and give the appearance is if you were actually looking at paper. It reflects light the same manner as book paper and its contrast is also very similar which means there is no need for a back light. No backlight also means that the batteries will last a longer time in comparison to other readers which are currently available.
