Amazon unveils the Kindle DX: Bigger, but is it better?


We'll have to wait and see what customers think of Amazon's new model of Kindle, the DX, but we can take a look at the specs right now. Unlike past models, the DX is designed to make it easier to read newspapers and magazines on a digital device.

Of course, this new gen e-reader can also be used for books - up to 3500 of them, in fact - that's 2000 more than its predecessor (275,000 books are available for the Kindle so far - and counting). But while it's very slim (just over 1/3 of an inch) and the new screen allows for more reading space, it does take up a bit more room.

Whether you'll be splashing out on a $489.00 pre-order or not, we'd be interested to know if you are willing (in theory) to give up a little more room in your travel bag (and a few more dollars) for a bigger screen... or do you prefer the original shape of the Kindle?

Amazon is obviously hedging its bets on that one, as both will be available for a while. (Although not outside America, darn it.)
