We can assume based on the hardware (i.e., no touchscreen) that the quality will be very comparable to the PRS-300 and the PRS-505.

The nook isn't likely to perform better when displaying PDFs. While there is definite room for improvement, the PRS-505 is state-of-the-art when it comes to displaying PDFs and, with everyone using Adobe Digital Editions, there isn't likely to be much variance.

I'm actually really surprised that the PRS-600 allowed any form of zooming (considering the slow refresh of e-Ink). As for why Adobe can't simply strip margins, the answer is beyond me...
