Large, Readable eInk Screen – The 9.7? Kindle DX Screen is great for reading textbooks. A customer kindle dx review states-the screen is also sharper and crisper than my Kindle 2 in a side-by-side comparison: the text is darker, and the contrast is much better, making for better visibility overall.PDF Support – Kindle DX has official Adobe PDF support. PDFs look great and have page numbers. Free Wireless Internet – Free Internet Access and Free Wikipedia so you can use it for reference. Do note that the browser has limited functionality. Cheap Textbooks Delivered Wirelessly in 60 seconds – There’ll be good prices (Amazon Kindle Editions of books usually are $9.99 instead of $24.99). Amazon is claiming 60% of textbooks will be covered initially. Convenience – Carry 3,500 books and textbooks. Buy books and textbooks instantly, anytime. Change Font Sizes, number of words per line, and spacing between lines. Kindle DX Review – Pros
