E-Reader that performs like Stanza.. choice of fonts/indents WITHIN the reader?
I love my Sony PRS-505. I've had it for years, it still works perfectly. I was wondering, however, if the newer e-readers now have options within the reader itself to change fonts/justification/indent size/line spacing, the way Stanza does on my iPhone?
I've always used serif fonts, but lately.. I've found that I enjoy reading sans serif on Stanza, just for a change of pace. I like being able to set indent sizes, justification, line spacing, all of that, based on what I like, or fonts based on my mood. Do e-readers with e-ink panels do that now? I know Sony and Amazon seem to be preparing new readers and I will keep an eye out, but was just wondering if any current models have firmware like this. Thanks!

Most of the modern readers offer user typographical controls but most have granularity limits. That is, they only offer a few preset choices for each option.
If you look around, though, you'll find a few options with very fine (1 point) granularity.
Two options I know for sure will do the job are the Pocketbook readers and the hacked Nook Touch (running Aldiko, FBReader, or Coolcalc; I favor the latter these days).

I shopped this thing to death before buying the Kobo Touch. I was mostly worried about fonts and justification. When I was done researching, to me it came down to the Nook Touch and the Kobo Touch. I chose the Kobo Touch because of availability here in Canada, but the Nook looks just as good.
Sony and Kindle are coming out with new models pretty soon. You might want to wait if you're patient. I didn't, lol! But no regrets.
