I too, enjoy the Kindle DX for reading ebooks and newspapers. It permits fewer page turns even with larger font sizes if I choose. I am a lefty and maybe because I golf right handed I have gotten quite used to the buttons on the right and use them with ease, so, for me, it is not a problem but a convenience. I have the US version which uses Sprint which is far better than AT&T where I live since AT&T does not service Montana very well.  Apple has a slogan that everything just works, well on the DX everything just works too. I love the Kindle DX and although tempted to look at the IPAD, similar size with lots of color, I think I will stay with the DX and K2 which is also the US version . E-ink is just better and easier on the eyes than the shiny lcd screen. I agree with the many posters who have said that if it is not e-ink it is not an ereader. In the future, I expect Amazon may change that thinking with mirasol or similar technology which is as easy on the eyes as e-ink.   Excellent review by Wired Mag. Good reading to all. :)

IPAD is way too expensive for what it is

Not even close
Overpriced, maybe in the $500 range
