Is there also a cbz/rar/zip reader for comics? (yeah... I fall for those once in a while).
Also, how is the functionality of the mail app? Is ok with an Exchange account together with gmail/hotmail?
There are half a dozen comic apps, specifically for cbr/cbz. Unfortunately, I haven't tested any of them. But they seem okay, about the same you get on Android or iPad.
I guess, PDFs are a bit critical. You can read them of course. And there are the usual commands we know from Adobe for example.
But I haven't seen any app on the detail level of GoodReader from iPad yet.
I'd say: Basic PDF operations = no problem. But more specific tasks, I have my doubt for now.
On the other hand, the display seems perfect for "professional" text: Landscape for DIN A4/letter format in its original size (well, half of it). Portrait for an enormous amount of information.
I'm using the native mail app with 2 Exchange accounts + iCloud + Yahoo + Gmail.
I only have a single (minor) problem: Quite frequently I have to re-enter my password for the Exchange accounts.
I've got the feeling, whenever I have used webmail for those accounts, I have to re-enter the password. I don't have this on the other platforms though.
No biggy, the rest works fine.
I'm missing Outlook though. I'd like to have some more advanced archiving and similar options. And of course the whole calendar/contacts stuff.
