Kindle DX

Well here it is, the Amazon Kindle DX.  While boasting a much larger screen at 9.7 inches with 1,200 x 824 resolution and 150ppi, it does load pages a bit slower.  Also the DX weighs about twice as much as the Kindle 2 (10oz vs. 18oz), but it is just a tiny bit thicker (0.38-inches vs. 0.36-inches).  Screen rotation to landscape mode is one of the major new features but adjustment time is slower at about 3-4 seconds.  Available for pre-order now at $489, the Amazon Kindle DX will ship this summer.
