Thanks so much, that never occurred to me. I just looked at an Archos at Staples. You're right the font is just fine. The only problem is that the background "paper" is a sort of grey color, not bright white like the Sony - even with the Archos turned up full brightness. I probably could get used to it, but I'm not sure. I might go ahead and get it and see if it works for me before the 14 day return is up.

With that said if you compare the Sony S to the other tablets using DPI as a measure we calculate the Tablet S with a 9.4" to have a DPI(aka PPI) of (160.58)

Sony S (1280x800 @ 10" : DPI 160.6)
XYBoard (1280x720 @ 8.2" : DPI 179.1)
Vizio (1280x768 @ 8" : DPI 186.6)
Archos (1280x768 @ 8" : DPI 186.6)

In the end it's best to still test the screen since there is more than just DPI/res but just from the spec alone you can garner that the screen resolution should suffice even though the res is smaller simply because you are moving to a smaller screen.
