Still, it would be nice to have something like Mobireader or, better, FBReader -- do they sell iPhones in Russia?
I read ebooks on a Tapwave Zodiac 2 PDA, a Palm OS device with a 320x480 screen. I find it no problem to read on. The screen on the N800 is not that much larger physically, though it is higher resolution. I used to read on a Palm Tuingsten E, with a 320x320 screen, and a Handspring Visor pro, which had a 160x160 mono screen (same size as the E, but half the resolution). I had no problems on those, either.
I wouldn't mind a larger screen, but I don't have problems with the one I have.
