Official launch of the Kindle DX – Core77. I bought the Kindle and Kindle2 the instant I could. I am holding off on the DX. Why?
* It is not clear to me that it enhances recreational reading at all — and in fact the size makes it less convenient
* The cost savings on textbooks aren’t large enough for me to get excited yet
* And more importantly the usage model of a textbook is different than that of a recreational book. Lots of flipping to sections, flipping back and forth, index usage, marking places, etc — does the device make this better?
* Can I use it in an open book exam setting?
So I am not sure yet. Eventually the weight savings may compel me but I am not there yet.
