The amazon employees are pretty clueless...
When I call them and asked how long the battery on my DXG should last, they happily told me that it should work for 2-3 weeks of constant reading with the 3g and tts off. I told them that it's more like 40-60 hours (depending on how fast I read books ~ about 450 wpm) Their response was to let it charge a few nights.

Most users report similar usage times from what I have heard (getting only 2-3 weeks reading an hour or 2 a day). From what I have gathered, unless you are the world's slowest reader, the folks at amazon support are blatant liars.

I also asked about firmware upgrades and PDF support and they said updates are in the works.

As far as hardware.. The K1 and K2 have comparable firmware, but you don't see them giving the K1 support. I agree that the DXG was released recently, and that it will probably get updated soon, but they don't seem to be making any great effort to do anything about updating it.

IMO we will know if they plan on updating PDF support / Browser support / Multiple fonts when they introduce lending and all that other crap that should filter down to the K2/DX series readers.
