Reading PDFs on the new Kobo WiFi Touch

Hi all:
I'm looking at buying a kobo wifi touch (newest generation), but I want to be able to read pdfs from work with no or minimal conversion. I had heard that previous generations of the Kobo were crap for reading pdfs, but the newer one was ok. Can anyone confirm this?

For a pdf that you want to be able to zoom in and move around a page as-is - yes...it's great for that. I prefer my PDF files to reflow for reading so I don't really like it that much for reading novels...but I kept my Sony Reader so I just switch back when I want to read a PDF.

Hang on, you have to scroll on the small screen. Only way really is a big screen device like kindle dx. Kobo is best you can get unconverted on small screen though
