Feeds Problems in 700

Hi Kovid. I know you're waiting for your new 700, I wanted to share my observations from first few days.

I downloaded few feeds into 700 in ePub format, results were not good. Reader crashes on USA Today, WSJ, BusinessWeek. There was a new recipe in this forum for SFGate, a small file, reader crashed again. NYTimes works just fine.

All these feeds work fine on 505 in ePub format.
I recreated all in lrf, loaded through Sony software, then it was fine.

I thought 700 had more memory and more powerful processor, didn't expect this.

Another interesting thing: USA Today (ePub) in 505 doesn't show correctly. For each article first page has the header only (Next, ... Previous), second page shows the article, there seem to be no page breaks, third page doesn't continue the text and has the footer only (Section ...). Once or twice 700 was able to open the same file, articles were formatted correctly, but then it crashed after few pages.

I hope 700 support is coming soon.
Thanks, David
