Thanks for the review.

It is NOT IE, it is the web site you are reading. They probably are formating with a fixed size table or div, so when you close it down you get scroll bars. You should complain to them to change there HTML to use a "max" width... this way when you are smaller it should size/flow the text.

Just read on Engaget that the Nokia810 is comming out soon. however, I'm not sure what OS it runs, so don't know what reader software will run on it.
