Does the new CyBook scale the fonts for DRMed MobiPocket books like hers does (or did)? The MobiPocket Vision version would enable fonts as large as perhaps 100 points or more. If the new CyBook will do that, I'll buy one for her tomorrow (or as soon as they are available).

Thanks,

I'll have to see if I can get some of the 'large-size' fonts captured on my dSLR. It will go large enough to put just three or four lines (very SHORT lines, I might add) on the display at a time. For all intents and purposes, I believe they are either 60pt or larger. But then, it can also display at about 6-8pt. So small that I can't *comfortably* read even using my prescription reading glasses. I think it displays between 50-60 lines at that size. Nope. This isn't the font-size-limited debacle A.K.A. Sony PRS. (Just kidding you Sony owners. We have a 500.)
