Kindle DX : Comes with a Bigger Screen and What?

kindle_dx_1Amazon is out with another Kindle. Named Kindle DX, this e-book reader sports a big 9.7 inch screen made with the same e-paper technology of the previous KIndles. It has the same off white and chrome look, same connectivity options and same everything else. In fact the keyboard seems less comfortable and the auto rotate sensor seems to be too much sensitive, the auto-rotate system doesn’t even work when the text to read feature is enabled. Is Amazon trying to make money just by launching another product?

Hi, I would like to know if its possible to scan a book and put it into it and then read. I am talking about books in Hindi. Please let me know if its possible. Thanks,

I just wanted to add my review to confirm that PDF support works great. One thing I love about the PDF on the Kindle DX is that it shows page numbers rather than the units of measure the regular ebooks use that I still don’t understand.
