Kindle DX Entertains with a Larger Rotating Screen
If you are an ardent book reader then you must be aware of the e-book reader gadgets around. If you haven’t bought any yet, then how about buying a Kindle? Not the Amazon’s Kindle 1 reader. Widen your research of the market and you are bound to appreciate Kindle DX (KDX), the latest e-book reader in the Amazon’s series.
If you know the Kindle series well then the appearance of Kindle 1 might have stopped you short of buying it. Aesthetically improved Kindle 2 won the hearts of many book lovers, and the improved user interface served as the cherry on the cake for the e-book patrons. Kindle DX is launched with similar attributes as those of Kindle 2. It is the larger screen and the accelerometer which enhances the experience of possessing a KDX.
Kindle DX and its Screen
The beautiful large e-ink based display at 9.7 inches is a big boon in more than one ways. It is a 16 level grayscale display projecting sharp images and clear text with a paper-like feel to the eyes. The bigger screen not only lets you read more content at a time as compared to the earlier 6 inches screen of Kindle 2, but even with the bigger font the number of words remain more on the screen compared to the earlier models.
Utility of Accelerometer
The accelerometer enables the reader change the view from ‘portrait’ to ‘landscape’ mode. Due to the better screen size, Kindle DX makes newspaper or magazine reading easier as one can incline the device to ‘landscape’ mode.
Inbuilt PDF Reader
KDX provides with native PDF support facilitating you to read white-papers and official documents. The inability of PDF documents to zoom out is somehow compensated once again by the larger screen. View the PDF file in ‘landscape’ and you will notice the size of the text increase by 20%!
Enjoy Kindle DX to the utmost by listening to MP3 music while reading the latest bestseller which can be easily downloaded from Amazon wirelessly (3G wireless service is free) in just 60 seconds. You can also hear the audio books through the Read-to-Me feature without bothering about the battery life of KDX which allows reading for 1 week with wireless on and for 2 weeks otherwise.
With thickness at just a little over 1/3rd of an inch, the size of Kindle DX doesn’t bother a reader much. You can easily compare other available devices in the niche (keep a check on the next post for Nook) and then buy KDX giving the paperbacks a little rest on the book stands.
