I don't know, but the browsing experience even on my iPad 3 is pretty bad, since I can't even read the book titles, which is really the point, so I can only imagine what browsing on a lower resolution tablet would be like.
The idea to give Brooklyn a discount for all the headache is great. I have emailed them about this as well, so I imagine the redesign is keeping them beyond busy.
