Comments on A Kindle World blog: $299 Kindle 2 or $489 DX? plus How the Kindle works

Time's a changing.

DX already had better contrast, and now it has eInk Pearl. Double ouch for the plain Kindle option.

jarod,
It might be worth it to call Kindle support at 866-321-8851 to ask if anything can be done at that end.

I realize probably not, though...

jarod,
Good point and I agree, though I did get both. While travelling right now, I'm using the DX, since it does everything and is no longer 'too big' for me. Even if/when they give the 6" pdf capabilities (w/text reflow, it's hoped), it would be too small to read as an unmodified PDF.



I really think the ideal is to have both, the DX f...

I really think the ideal is to have both, the DX for papers, technical reading and larger formats, the kindle for portability and reading while in bed.

Having both is still very pricy though, so let's hope these devices will keep getting less expensive with time.

Sherri,

Great! If you return here, check out the right hand column too as it has links to a lot of helpful support areas and tips on using the Kindle.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Yes it does! Thanks, Sherri

Yes it does!

Thanks,
Sherri

S.,
It -could- get frustrating to turn pages more often but it doesn't bother me as much as it bothers others to turn the page a lot, as long as I can see. On the other hand I never need more than one step above the default. And sometimes go down to one step below the default to see more on a page (not to avoid page turns).
The letters are very sharp.

Yes, anyone can have up to 6 Kindles on one account (family members, friends whose books you are paying for), and all can share one book.
The one account holder is responsible for all payments for books.

So, since I had the K2 before the DX, I've kept the K2 for carrying around outside.

I was out last night at 9pm ordering 3 dinners from a restaurant and I had the little Kindle. I think it calls less attention to itself when I bring it out. It's just the size of a paperback. But, I had a half hour wait, and it's great to never mind waiting anymore because I have so much to choose from to read.

In fact, re the K2, I'm going on a 3 week vacation in a few months, out of the country and for awhile wanted to find a larger purse, so I could carry the big Kindle but decided it was just too comfortable to have the small one when outside and that's more likely the one I'll bring.

Here's something. Amazon gives you up to 30 days to make up your mind in that you can just return it within that time if for ANY reason you don't want to keep it.

As long as it still looks fine you get a full refund. So, you could try the Kindle 2 right away since you didn't want to wait for the DX and if you have doubts then you can return it and get the DX as a separate order.

They are no-questions-asked about the 30-day period.

Does that help?

Andrys,
I have read all your information and I am still torn on which Kindle to get. If you use larger font on the Kindle 2 does it get frustrating turning the page all the time?

Also you said you use 2 away from hom ad the DX at home. Can you download the same books to bothe Kindles?

Thanks,
S.L. Curtis

Anonymous,
My reaction has been very similar to yours! I just concentrate better when reading on the Kindle. People talk about the texture of a book but I think of the Kindle as a window to the author's words and I get almost mesmerized.

The DX IS a good reading size to my surprise, though I felt the K2 was also, but now it looks so tiny :-) Either one, it takes just a few minutes to get (re)adjusted to though. Love the DX but wouldn't give up the K2 and glad I didn't have to make that decision. Thanks for the feedback.

I got a K2 in February and the DX about a month ago. I haven't use the K2 since getting the DX for books or newspapers. The K2, however, is perfectly adequate for books. After the first hour, the K2 became transparent - I got into a book just as if reading print and paper. Same with the DX - I just like the size of the screen better. Plus the DX will pay for itself for me in about 8 months given the savings on newspaper subscriptions. In that sense it was free.
