Sorry, I know this must be boring to most of you but I am wondering if we know anything yet about the print sizes that will be allowed on this device?

We currently know next to nothing about this device. But usually on an e-book device you can select a few text sizes. I'm almost 100% sure that you'll have a large print option on the Kindle.

Ah, thanks for taking the time to answer.

Could anyone who has one of these please comment on the font size? Is it as good as or better than (hopefully!) Sony's?

Thanks!

perhaps someone will comment tomorrow but you can download the manual now and look for yourself. They have 6 sizes of fonts.

The video on the site seems to give a bit of glimpse of sizes. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FI73MA/ref=amb_link_5873612_2?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=gateway-center-column&pf_rd_r=0WAVRSE668J3GGJ2E2NG&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=329252801&pf_rd_i=507846

It's the demo about half-way down the page.

Thanks folks. The text size doesn't look all that big in the demo, but I wasn't sure if he picked the largest size or not... Hopefully one of the early adopters will comment tomorrow. :)

The font sizes goes as large as 20pt's the smalled being 12pt and at that size it's not to bad actually but the 20pt (or size 6) is perfect for people who have a hard time seeing.

Charbax posted this nifty video:

About 7 mintues in or so he shows the largest font size.
