If you don't even have landscape mode, is even worse. I tried that, trust me, and it is really frustrating. I've posted screen-shots here of how bad it looks. A 10" screen, let's say a Motorola Xoom, iPad, Galaxy, are much better on that.

If budget is a concern or you want an eink device, try to buy one with landscape mode. It won't cut off (or there is less chance of that) let's say, a Sony or a Kindle 3.

I agree completely. The only device I've been able to tolerate PDFs on is my 10" Xoom and it works pretty well.
