The Amazon Kindle DX is 26.4 x 18.3 x 1 cm. Bezos says it’s for reading newspapers, magazines, journals, and your own PDF documents more easily. But how does it stack against its deadtree counterparts?

But then again, newspapers and magazines are dying, aren’t they?
What do you think? Would you change your Sunday paper for a Kindle? What about your favourite bathroom magazine?
