Oh, and one more tidbit.
I just "discovered" (after almost 5 years owning my REB1200), that you are able to turn the page with the stylus / touchscreen.
If you look at the image below, you will see the dog-eared top right of the reader has a vertical strip beneath it going all the way down the right-hand side of the screen. It looks like the remaining pages of a book?
Well, if you use your stylus to click in that area (it's a bit tricky at first, and forget about using stubby finger tips), viola! Instant page turn!!!!!
I found this in the REB1200 Yahoo Group posting (from 2003 I think
) while I was "researching" your 'Rotate the Screen' question.
Consider this old dog, now having a new trick!
