Kindle DX Forum, Yes/No?

Will or should the Kindle DX have its own forum (as the Sony 700 does) since it's a separate and new line?

I would vote yes because I ordered a DX but to be fair, it sort of depends on whether the differences between the two Kindles are actually as large as the differences between the two Sony Readers.

What is new about the KDX is PDFs. Everything else is on a continuum from the K1 through the K2 to the KDX. Whispernet is the same, the Kindle store is the same, TOPAZ and AZW are the same, managing accounts is the same. So I suggest leaving Amazon Kindle as one big forum.

What is considered a major difference between the 505 and the 700 besides the touch screen?

I don't know of any. Based on that criteria - the KDX's larger screen is a major difference, and I suppose it is the largest difference to the K2. I just don't see how that makes it a separate forum. I would say the same about the PRS-700, although I don't follow the Sony forums closely.

I would suggest a sub forum off of the Kindle forum for the DX.

Well the touch screen means that things operate differently and different features are present and the firmware is not compatible resulting in different problems. The UI is totally different. PDF is different, zooming is present on the 700, Search is present but not on any other device, 5 fonts sizes is different, there is an on screen keyboard, notes, and there are other subtle differences. Of course there is also the lamp. Even so it could be a subforum of Sony devices without much loss.

I don't see any reason to split the info. Issues KDX users will have are not going to be sufficient, most likely, to create a new forum for it.

If for some reason that changes, a new forum can be created then.

Most of all the info will apply to all 4 kindle units, as the software is the same. I know especially in the Kindle Dev section most hacks or mods made for the DX can be easily applied to the K2i and vice versa.

I guess a new sub-forum wouldn't hurt.

This is an old thread and I'm no longer pushing for a new sub-forum. There are so many new devices that it going to be difficult to maneuver with too many forums. All Kindles staying together is working just fine.

It is now our preference to use tags, rather than sub-fora, to separate multiple devices within a single forum. This works well.

Harry, I think you meant thread "prefixes"...

Don't know if that distinction would change daffy4u's response though as she probably read "prefixes" in place of "tags" anyways.

I'm not fond of either as an "only" option.
