The Kindle DX has a 9.7-inch screen, a bigger hard drive (holds 3,500 books), wirelessly downloads books in under 60-seconds, and a nifty $489 asking price.
And yet, and yet, we’re still reluctant about it. Really? $500? Maybe I could justify that if it were a touch-screen tablet; a mini-computer that did more than just read electronic books (like say, if Apple were to ever come out with a sexy tablet — something halfway between a netbook and the iPhone that also read ebooks, what would be the point of the Kindle?).
Does anyone use a Kindle or have used one and can give us lowdown on its appeal? [Amazon]
