Seems like a review which would have been relevant last June.

The Guy doesn't understand e-INK and what it brings to the table. No mention of battery life and constant complaints that he would buy a netbook for the same price. He also fails to make clear that PDF's can easily be transferred by USB to avoid paying for Whispernet charges. Why would you email yourself a PDF file when the eBook Reader is setting right beside you? He also fails to notice that DRM is missing from PDF support meaning it is likely not to work for the tasks he recommends it for.

Perhaps this review, though late considering the DX's summer release date, is a pre-cursor to an announcement by the Post of a plan to subsidize the purchase of a DX with a long term Kindle subscription to the Post?

The review did have that "paid-for" infomercial feel, didn't it?
