Because the Kindle DX is much cheaper, has a better screen, longer battery life, comes with free wireless access, the ability to access hundreds of thousands of books the IRex can't, and Amazon will still be around in 10 years whereas IRex may not.
The Kindle doesn't have a touch screen, is only available in the States, and doesn't have wifi.
The biggest advantage is price, but that is useless if you're living anywhere else in the world.
