Over the past four years, I have loved my Kindle DX because of its large screen, which has been very helpful for reading PDFs. The keyboard has also been helpful. It's e-ink, which is easy on the eyes. And let's not forget the occasional Wikipedia access in the middle of nowhere thanks to the free wireless.
I am starting to worry that the DX may fail one of these days, and I wonder what I would replace it with. Amazon still sells it, but there were rumors a couple of years ago that they were dropping it. And the DX has always been slow at turning pages, so if Amazon is not far from releasing an upgrade, it would make no sense to buy a new DX, even if the price is half what it was when it launched.
I have no interest whatsoever in a tablet or any kind of display apart from e-ink. Does anyone have a sense of what Amazon's next move might be for large-screen e-ink readers?
I am not married to mobi, so another large e-ink reader would be acceptable. That being said, I would really like some kind of keyboard input as on the DX, and I realize it is a rare feature.
