The small, paperback sized form factor is part of what I love about my Kindle. The larger device is not really for me. But I do see it's application for newspapers, textbooks etc.

Due to the fact that I am a student and if the textbooks worked without any conversion, then I would be interested but not at $489...geez, the cost of textbooks suck you dry and then to have to pay this on top of it...I will stick with my K2 and a few glitchs in conversion before I pay that price.

I answered yes, not because I'm going to place my order immediately but because I surely will buy one at some time in the future.  I love my K2 and will continue using it for reading certain kinds of books, but there will be a place for DX in my life too because it has a different purpose.  I will use a DX for newspapers, magazines, and business documents.  My husband will do the same.  And I expect my children will use whatever model is available when they are in college.  I think this is a very exciting development and it has my full support.

It depends on the pricing. You would think they would be priced cheaper than regular text books because of saved production costs. Also the publishers don't have to worry about them being resold to used books stores.

There are no page buttons on the left side of the device.  That means I can't read in bed like I do now with my K2.  There is no mention of folders or any other kind of organizational structure that will allow you to use that 2X storage space (4GB).  I think I'll wait.  However, the replacement of textbooks will save students tons of hernias and back-related problems.

At $489? I'm still happy with my K1. Little Gertie has been good for me.
You and me, both, Gertie. (I mean my K1 has been good for me, not Little Gertie).

Congrats on 3200 posts!!!!
