разрешение экрана слабое. многие пдф и джву файлы будут кривенько смотреться.
Что на нем, что на читалке от сонни -pdf читать -издевательство,тормозит.Разрешение экрана здесь не при делах (Адоб для просмотра pdf рекомендует минимальный экран 10 " диаганаль и 100 точек на дюйм)На дюйм оно даже выше чем на мониторе ПС.У Вас на настольном компьютере или лэптопе 100 точек на дюйм (если не используете профессиональные инженерные рабочие станции).На этих устройствах 170 точек на дюйм.Все это далеко до полиграфического 300 точек на дюйм для изображений и выше для текста.
Можно наловчиться листать за две строки до конца. В любом случае, лучше экранов пока не придумали.
