Well, not really. Will they display the whole width of the page? Perhaps. Will it be comfortably readable with that super tiny text? No way.

Another thing that bugs me about the 7 inch tablets, and many other sized tablets too, is that they tend to use an awkward widescreen in 16 x 9 or 16 x 10 configuration. I like widescreens on large computer monitors, but on a small device it is awkward, especially for reading books and web browsing. Reading in portrait in widescreen looks like a really narrow page. Reading in landscape in widescreen looks like a really short page. I really think the 4 x 3 screen configuration is more natural for reading books and web browsing. The only reason to have 16 x 9 is for videos, but why make all others apps suffer because of that?
