There's no reason there should be a difference in page turning speed under 2.x vs a hypothetical 3.x DX version. If one assumes that the DX 2 would be based on kindle 3 hardware, it has the same cpu [as k2 based devices], but more ram... which isn't needed for the java environment when not using the browser.
