Engadget reviewed the Kindle DXG

I usually don't like to link to reviews by the major tech blogs. I don't like some of their reviews because sometimes the reviewer doesn't know enough about the subject to really grasp the strengths and weaknesses of  the device being reviewed. Fortunately the Kindle DXG is a single purpose device so there's not much for them to miss. Click here for the review.

Here's the wrap-up:

Not a lot has changed here -- but Amazon's given a pretty decent upgrade to the DX, a large reader that was originally targeted at students. While there's surely a demographic out there for super-sized devices in general, we're not sure that students on-the-go are the ones for this device. As our previous review of the DX stated, for now at least, a laptop, highlighter, and text still win in most cases. That said, this new $379 DX is definitely an iterative improvement over the last one. If you're a current DX owner, you probably won't feel any need to upgrade, but if you've been thinking about buying one, these improvements might be enough to get you to finally bite.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
