Pocketbook 602 Yes or No?

I read, maybe 80% epub (or rtf, doc...) and maybe 20% pdfs (technical - math. physics).
Can the 602 be able to handle that?
My question is about the pdfs. I don't want a perfect pdf reader, and I understand that I have to read pdfs in landscape. But can I navigate easy in landscape from the top of the page to bottom?
My choice for the pocketbook 602 is because I can install text to speech and dictionary in my language (Portuguese).
I also I’m seeing the 9.7’ (pocketbook 902 and the Onyx M91S) but I’m afraid it will be big to take in my travels and also uncomfortable (to heavy).

Thanks for yours opinions.

Yes, Pocketbook is a good choice for you.
Handling pdf files on a 15cm-device is a little bit tricky. You're right, you will have to read them in landscape mode. If you have the appropriate software than it's best to crop the margins before.
Pocketbook allows you to search inside pdf files which may be a helpful feature when reading technical books.
Of course, the bigger devices like PB 902 and the Onyx, when delivered, are much more suitable for reading pdf-files but are not thus portable. Here you must decide yourself what is more important for you.
