DX or tablet size is too big for portability.

With a touch screen UI that everyone is moving to, we should be able to get something the size of a mmbp with the same "printable" screen area, around 7 to 7.5".
Well, first you only read 1 page of a book at a time. The fact that two pages are in front of you doesn't really change that, unless you are referring to a diagram... but that's not your typical mmpb.

You could look around for an iRex 8inch thing. Of course, the company's is defunct now.
