I'm not exactly sure what you are saying as the wording is hard to interpret, but first of all the Kindle DXG is not "mythical" as it has been released for general sales and many of us already have one. I definitely agree that it could have much better PDF support, but so could most, if not all, currently available e-Ink devices. I doubt e-Ink technology and readers will ever come close to the PDF support found on computers or even the iPad. If by ADE support you mean ADE PDF support then that would be nice, I'm not sure what support is native for PDFs on the KDXG.

If you mean ADE ePub support then that would be terrific to have. No doubt Amazon wants to sell books as that is their "bread and butter" profit area as for as books and readers goes. If they could secure deals with publishers to sell ePubs too, and I think they could, then they would probably have greater book sales volume. If they would add ePub support for DRMed and nonDRMed ePubs to their readers that would be really terrific. I personally wish all of the major players would settle on one format like ePub and let third-party developers create apps for their readers so that we have a choice in which app to use and on which reader device to use it.

As I keep saying about support for PDF on the Kindle. Amazon, just get us the development platform and the SDK for Kindle. Do not cripple it in any way. Let us have the real deal. If we get that, I really would not care what Amazon does or does not do to enhance features and release updates. I wouldn't need them anymore.

God I hate you. Every post starts off with a wise crack remark about what the commenter wrote. Here is exactly what he means..

"If this new mythical large screen device [he speaks of the rumored device larger than the DX] is a Kindle Amazon would need to improve the PDF functionality [he means improve the PDF functionality] for it to be attractive to me and also add ADE support.[he means add ADE support]" Do we need to clarify anything else?

You are an annoying troll with a personal vendetta, but I do NOT hate you. I've never met you and probably would not hate you if I had. I welcome other peoples' opinions and ideas. I wish you did the same. Now please stop the personal flaming or go join the iPad group where they love to flame. We are more civilized here in this forum.

I also think that there is market for 12'' eReaders. I hope someone makes one. We have way to many small 6'' eReaders.

E Ink's Pearl Display Specification Sheet lists 12" as an option. However, I am not aware of any production devices with this screen size.
