… and I loved it. In fact, I think my level of interest was highly inappropriate for a public setting (I was in the middle of a bar shift).
Just a short post, this, but I just wanted to point out that it’s a great gadget that any technophile would no doubt get joy from.
More seriously, though, I think the device would actually be really useful for me. It was the Kindle DX (currently still only available through Amazon.com), which a friend had brought back with them. The larger screen (9.7”) looks like it would be brilliant for work-articles, as well as the magazines I subscribe to in PDF format, and also the PDF ARCs I receive from a handful of US publishers.
The text clarity was great (much better than my beloved Sony Reader), and the on-board PDF reader had a great feature that appeared to get rid of much of the white border on the page, therefore making the text bigger and easier to read – this is a huge advantage over the Sony, which can’t handle some PDFs, particularly those with images (which would include watermarks – such as those on PDF ARCs).
[If there are any publishers/publicists reading – I intend to buy a DX, so if you’d like me to take a look at any books as PDFs, then I’d be happy to do so. Always interested in reading new things from any publisher.]
