My iLiad arrived yesterday, so I uploaded the paper you indicated and took some pics today. In the meantime I have also experimented with several other scientific pdfs. Currently the pdf viewer does not have a zoom function, and so this is limited. One way to maximize the viewing is to crop the pdf as tight as possible. For some reason, some pdfs don't allow that, including the one you picked - possible a DRM issue? So, I would say that this is not easy to read at all, at the moment. When the pdf upgrades to include zoom, I can report back.
The attached image doesn't quite do the text sharpness justice. But you can see the large amount of whitespace around the rim, which I can get rid off with most other pdfs.
