Amazon Kindle review has some videos of the new DX2 in a review they have just done. Here’s just a few of their thoughts on the new unit:
40% better contrast than the Kindle DX. At least it seems that way to me. It doesn’t really seem like 50% better contrast plus graphite casing. It is however very, very noticeable and much better than the Kindle DX’s screen.
25% better than my Kindle 2 Global’s screen. The screen on that was very good so the difference doesn’t seem as stark as with the Kindle DX.
The background is pretty white. As opposed to a very light grey on the Kindle DX 1 the background on the Kindle DX 2 seems white.
After spending a fair amount of time with my iPad, I can honestly say that I really don’t like reading on it. I have to go to the black background, white text option to make it marginally comfortable on my eyes. It is also much too heavy.
One thing I have noticed, though, is how small the screen on my Kindle 2 seems to be. Reading on the iPad really accustoms one to a larger screen. I never thought I’d want something the size of the DX, but I’m beginning to think that it might be the right one for me when I upgrade.
