Serif font for JBL

Any rumors as to the inclusion of a serif font in future JBL upgrades? It was one disappointment I had comparing it to the Libre Pro.

Not any that I've heard. With the Adobe Reader Mobile that was introduced with the
0.16e firmware I am seeing other fonts in .epub, often with serif. PDF files without
reflow have always allowed for the display of any text.

Luck;
Ken

Ditto, with the latest firmware the JBL displays whatever font is embedded in epub. Looks great!

Now that I have loaded more EPUB and PDF books, I see that they do display with serif fonts. It is only the TXT books where that is not an option. Thanks.
