Kindle DX Global: big screen and international delivery

So finally, the DX global Kindle is available! That is a big, clear e-reader (e-book reader) that can be used through most of the world.

More precisely, it comes with a huge, very readable screen (9.7 inches, about 25 cm) and it is usable in over 100 countries. The screen has electronic ink, which makes it almost as readable as a paper book; don’t worry about the glares of laptop screens.

You buy ebooks for it and they are instantly delivered wirelessly to your kindle. Thin as a magazine, it can store about 3,500 books, blogs and docs (you can also put you own content in it through a standard USB connection).

I was a bit skeptical at the beginning with the Kindle (I don’t mind using my laptop to read books) but there is so many people telling me that the screen is really great, and how comfortable is not having to charge it often (it has a long-duration battery), that I’m strongly tempted to get it.

You can get a better understanding of how the Kindle works by reading the user reviews and technical details at the Kindle page..
