Regular size (mini sim, not credit card size and not the even smaller micro). And xournal does have zoom, pan, and even note export as pdf, but don't hold your breath for a port.

Right now, the PocketBook does have nearly all libraries required to run Xournal, but the most crucial one - Gtk+ - is a hasty port, not suitable for annotations (it appears not to support calibration or strokes), and the sources for that have not been published. I have tried building Gtk+DirectFB programs to test it, and it doesn't seem trivial.

Perhaps I should have a closer look at how the DR800 solves it, normally Xournal expects an X server and uses XInput for better digitizer support.

Edit: Looks like the DR800 version does use X (it links to libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0). It might actually turn out to be easier to get OpenInkpot's X server running on our PocketBook devices than porting Xournal to run without X.
