DX arrived today
« on: August 07, 2009, 02:28:29 PM »
You can't help but be impressed with the screen size.  I thought of giving one to a friend with Macular Degeneration.  He loves to read and uses a magnifying loupe.  However, the size of the keys below would be hard for him to see.
I haven't put the skin on yet but I did put it in my Oberon Dragonfly Pond cover. The DX and the cover add more weight but I can handle it.

Right away though I started having the same problems as I did with the K2 that arrived on Wednesday.

Amazon had said they would call today with a fix.  No call and it's 5 p.m. here on the east coast.  I don't have a problem with my K1.  I've now purchased five Kindles and only the K1s work at 100 percent.  I hope Amazon can fix the problem.

It is an amazing site when you get your first Kindle

I was impressed with the screen size too but get used to it very quickly. It's easy to get used to good things and take them for granted. Hope you get your problem sorted out.

Avalon, I'm sorry to hear you're having the problem with the DX.  I wonder if the different software version on the K2 and DX has any impact on the connectivity?  Keep us posted!
