Kindle DX earns high ratings from reviewers

As I have mentioned before I visit Lisa Gade's Mobile Tech Review site before I buy any product I haven't personally tested out myself because she provides some of the best insight and thorough coverage of mobile products on the Internet. Lisa posted her full Amazon Kindle DX review and ended up awarding the device 4-1/2 out of 5 stars.

You can check out several other reviews of the new Kindle DX here:

I didn't know the Kindle DX lacked dictionary support and find that odd given that it is targeted to the student. There is no dictionary support for PDF viewing, but it is present in ebooks. I still don't see much of a demand for the larger Kindle DX since there doesn't seem to be a lot of textbook content out there and it doesn't make sense to use it for magazines without it having a color display. I have no personal interest in buying a Kindle DX after picking up my own Kindle 2 in February, but would sure like to have some of that native PDF support along with zoom functionality (think Sony Reader here folks). I wonder if Amazon will send out an OTA update for Kindle 1 and 2 owners to provide this support? I would love to have seen Amazon put that more compact QWERTY keyboard on my Kindle 2 and give me a slightly larger display or overall smaller device with the same size display.

Larry also posted yesterday on what he would like to see in a Kindle DX for the premium price of the device. I fully agree that WiFi would be nice to have, especially since my Sprint coverage at home is quite weak and I usually have to drive to the end of the street to visit my "Kindle library."
