PDF sizes for various devices
I have a friend who is releasing a book in A4 pdf format and while they are not exactly open to / convinced of other more suitable formats at the moment, they are willing to release the book in various size formatted PDF to go with the various ebook devices that can support it (sony, iLiad etc).
To that end. Would anyone have a list of sizes for Pdf for various devices.
(nb: unfortunately I've been sworn to secrecy on the book for the moment so can't go in to any details)

You can get the sizing for the Sony Reader from the Wiki article. I would think that sizing would work well enough for any 6" display, but I don't know what you'd need for the iLiad.
Hey, I just had a brainwave -- you could download a sample file from Feedbooks or Manybooks for each device and see what the pages are formated to from those files.

Now why would your friend want to release PDF only? PDF is a rather lousy format for reading. It's too inflexible. One of the things that a reader is good for is being able to change the font size. Can't do that with PDF. AllI can say is if this book is only going to be in PDF and your friend is not willing to think about better formats for audience, then I think his sales won't do very well.

for the illiad, 150mm by 120mm works very well
