It's starting already

My Google Alert sent me a link to this comparison of Kindle DX and Plastic Logic. The funny thing is, neither device is on the market yet. Amazon has announced the Kindle DX for “this summer,” and Plastic Logic hasn't even given their device a name or a price, let alone a ship date. And yet already there is speculation on which one will prevail.

But the comparison points out that Plastic Logic and Kindle DX are, in fact, in head-to-head competition. A large screen eReader is needed for magazines, newspapers, textbooks, and business documents, while novels and regular nonfiction books work fine on Kindle 2/Sony sized eReaders. Amazon is still selling Kindle 2, and unless you want an eReader mostly for newspapers and magazines, it's not worth it to pay the extra money for Kindle DX.
