A Simple Touch ...vs Kindle DX

Please, don't waste your time with another 6 inch ereader!!

It's time to a big screen that can challenge with Kindle DX!!

Nut not of 9.7 inch, because it is not  comfortable and portable.

I think that an ideal measure is more than 7 but less tha 9 inch.

When you do it?

Thanks

No way do I want to haul something around as big as that DX. If I did, I'd read on my iPad. I think you'll find most people seem to prefer a more portable device...even Amazon just released new devices...and none are the size of the DX.

Kindle DX is great for people with bad eye sight, but, personally, I prefer the smaller Nook Touch that is light and fits into my purse (something the DX would never do).

The fact that I haven't seen any updated Kindle DX models from Amazon shows their popularity.

I agree that a slightly larger screen (say 7" or 7.5") would be ideal, but I doubt that any ereader producer is going to release this on its own.  Currently everyone is using the 6" screen, and almost all are buying from the same manufacturer.  

 

Being the only one using a larger screen would increase their costs and result in a higher product price...

Re: A Simple Touch ...vs Kindle DX

Recently I saw through the web the Xoom Media Edition.

It's a tablet with 8.2 inch.

 

Perfect screen size!!

8.2 ....8.5 is a very perfect screen size for a much portable e confortably device used in travel on public transport, airplane, etc. and in a landscape mode you can read without much eyes stress.

Both for a tablet than for an ereder.

 

Thanks.

Yeah, but that's not an eink screen.  The LCD displays are available (reasonably) in way, way, way more sizes.
