I usually like to compary by surface area, even though we usually compare screens by diagonal measure. In this case, the resolution in dpi is different, so the best comparison might by in pixels.

Measuring by pixels, the Kindle DX screen is twice as big as the Kindle2.

1200*824=988,800

600*800=480,000
