I have a Tablet PC with a 1024x768, 10 inch screen and it is barely large enough for many PDFs without zooming in. As has been mentioned many times here, the typical PDF really sucks if you need to view it on a small screen. PDF just isn't designed for reflowing on different screen sizes. Even using a "tagged" PDF isn't a very good solution. Of course, if you create a PDF specifically for the screen size you are using, the results can be good.
