Device: Kobo Aura HD, Kindle DX
Cool PDF/image handling + Sync + Why Bookeen do you prefer Bookeen

Hi!
I'm considering getting a Bookeen Odyssey Frontlight HD (vs. a Kobo Glo or Kindle PW). I already have a Kindle DX, but a frontlit/backlit eInk device would be very nice.

Three questions about the Frontlight HD:

1. How does it handle large scanned PDF documents (scanned book pages, A4/Letter size pages), does it handle zooming and skipping to the next part gracefully? (My Kindle DX is very slow and also a little clumsy compared to GoodReader on the iPad. I don't expect a 6" eInk reader to be as good as a larger tablet, but does it work somehow? Or is it quite unusable for this?)

2. How about cloud/OTA syncing (or just fetching somehow) notes, highlights, bookmarks and latest read page? Have you found a way for any of this, or is it generally not possible?

3. If you would prefer Bookeen over the competition, what would be your main reason?

(Edit: Found this: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=117869
It seems custom font and language support is main reasons ...)
