The PocketBook 902 is a 9.7-inch ebook reader that is set to take on the Kindle DX with its lower price and appealing set of features.
To be fair the Kindle DX has it beat in a few key areas—the higher contrast Pearl screen and 3G connection to Amazon's vast library of ebooks are the two most obvious.
Other than those two things, the PocketBook 902 has a lot of features that the Kindle DX does not: WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity; reflow, notes, highlights, dictionary, custom zoom, and active hyperlinks for PDFs; support for Adobe DRM; and support for a wide number of languages and formats, just to name a few.
