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...
I think both the 600 and the 700 are state of the art as far as PDF is concerned, given that they allow both zooming and reflow. I just wish you had an option to make the zoom persistent like with the Cybook Gen3. The 505 and 300 are a bit lacking, but still good with properly OCRed pdfs, given that they only support reflow.
