Amazon Kindle DX Graphite review

 

Just over a year ago, we reviewed Amazon's jumbo-sized Kindle, the Kindle DX. And just a few weeks ago, Amazon outed a new, $379 Graphite gray version of the DX. This time, it's got the new Pearl display from E Ink, which supposedly boasts a much...

Improved contrast ratio, crisp display ; Attractive gray casing ; Improved refresh rate

Refresh rate of E Ink (while improved) still laggy ; Orientation sensor overly sensitive ; Awful keyboard

Amazon Kindle 3G Review

 

Review of the new Kindle, Amazon.com's e-book reader with 3G network capability.

Amazon Kindle 3 – video review and pictures

 

Hey Guys, as I promised in my previous post about the Amazon Kindle 3 digital reader, I managed to get my hands on the new ebook reader last week and got a nice video review and some pictures. I do have to say ...

Amazon Kindle 3 WiFi/3G Review

 

The Amazon Kindle's widespread popularity has heaved it up and out of the ranks of novelty gadgets and made it a bona fide household item. Look around. These days, you're just as likely to see Granny Smith reading from her Kindle on her rocker as you...

Size: Further proof that this matters. Amazon managed to shave off both size (Kindle 3 is 21 percent smaller than Kindle 2) and weight, while still delivering a better product ; Free 3G and WiFi capability: Amazon's thought of everything, including the...

Price tag (for Kindle 2 owners): A $139 cost may be attractive to some, and $189 might even be within your paygrade -- but for non-first-timers who just spent roughly the same amount of cash on the Kindle 3's predecessor, the price gives little...

In other words, the new Kindle is worth every cent for the newbie. For the Kindle-owning public, it's a slightly good buy provided you have some change to spare. Otherwise, the improvements that have been made aren't so groundbreaking that you can't...

Quick review: Amazon Kindle 3 e-reader

 

Like other E Ink-powered devices, the Kindle isn't back-lit either and claims battery life of about a month, as power is only consumed during page turns, presuming that you don't use WiFi, 3G or sound.

Being third-generation, unsurprisingly, the Kindle 3 is a refined product. It’s also now reached a price point nearing impulse buy (£109 WiF-only, £149 WiFi/3G) with Amazon confident that it will make more than enough profit on the content it sells for...

Amazon Kindle 3 Video Unboxing

 

Amazon‘s newest e-reader, the Kindle 3, just arrived on my door step. Rather than post a bunch of written text listing the specifications and what not I thought you'd enjoy a peak at the new device on video. Check out my quick unboxing and first...

Review: Kindle DX (Graphite)

 

At $380, the Amazon Kindle DX continues to excel as a large-format E-Ink-based e-reader, for both Kindle books and PDFs. And its lower price makes it that much more attractive. But prospective buyers will need to consider the trade-off of purchasing...

Page turns left me with the impression of being zippier than on the Kindle DX, but I still found myself frustrated by its still-sluggish navigation speed compared with an LCD-based e-reader experience. Amazon does add Twitter and Facebook social...

Kindle DX Graphite Review

 

The Bottom Line Instead of bending to the pressure of the media to add video playback capability, games, touch screen, or other features not related reading, Amazon simply focused on improving the Kindle DX's readability. The Kindle DX Graphite is a...

While the Kindle DX Graphite measures 10.4 x 7.2 inches, its thin waistline of 0.36 inches and mere weight of 18.9 ounces make it ideal for couch reading or travel reading. Those who find the speed of the Kindle DX quite good will find the page turn...

The Kindle DX Graphite lacks a micro-SD slot, but given its very large onboard storage, it is capable of holding years’ worth of reading. Except for the casing color, it would be a little hard differentiate the Kindle DX Graphite from the Kindle DX...
