Kindle or Kindle DX?

Kindle or Kindle DX?

Which Kindle is better?

That is the question.

Kindle line has completely revolutionized the way books, documents and information is stored and accessed. But now with two Kindle products to choose from the question is which one to choose?

The first and most obvious difference is the size of the units. The Kindle DX boasts a 9.7" display screen, while the standard Kindle has a slightly smaller display at 6". To many users this may not be a deal breaker. In fact having an overall smaller footprint may make the standard Kindle a more appealing product to some. This smaller screen is also complemented with a very slim design measuring just 1/3", about the thickness of a typical magazine. It also weighs in at an astonishing 10.2 ounces which is lighter than most paperback books. In contrast the Kindle DX weighs in at 18.9 ounces. However it is the same 1/3" thick.

While both Kindle models are displayed in grayscale they do boast 16 shades of grey for very clear, crisp images and text.

Both models also offer additional features including a built-in PDF reader. This is handy for people who carry and store personal documents on their unit. One of the most intriguing features is the Read-To-Me option. It incorporates a text-to speech function that will read newspapers, magazines, blogs and books out loud to you. This is a very exciting feature for those who like to sit back, close their eyes and listen to the book, magazine or newspapers of their choose.

Both Kindle models offer 3G wireless access allowing users to download books in less than 30 seconds. The 3G wireless feature does not require the user to sign any contracts; there are no monthly fees and no hunting for WiFi access.

Some of the major differences between the two models are memory, or storage space. The Kindle DX can store about 3500 books while the Kindle can store 1500 books. Another differentiating feature is that The Kindle DX has an Auto-Rotate feature. This allows the user to simply turn the unit on its side and the text will automatically rotate, whereas the Kindle has a manual rotate function.
