Yep - it's wonderful to read on a backlit device, and 7 inches is a great size to read from and to cart around.

Only thing for me is that I find it a tad heavy if I've got to hold it to read for any length of time. I really need for it rest on something.

Playbook as reader

There is a keyboard available for the Playbook and it has a fold out (like a picture frame for a table top) and works great for reading.

Forgive the thread necromancy. As this was still on the front page of this forum, I figured, why make a new one?

Just picked up a used Playbook to use primarily as a PDF e-reader.

My Kobo Aura HD will still be my primary e-reader, as I'm a huge fan of its various benefits (e-ink screen, long battery life, feather-like weight) but for PDFs, the Playbook will be a welcome addition to my gaming table.

Had to shell out for a third-party PDF program though (PDF Reader, available at Appworld.) Adobe Reader was just pathetic. Wouldn't even open some of my PDFs, and wouldn't even display a Table of Contents.

PDF Reader works just great, and at $1.12 ($0.99 + tax) doesn't exactly break the bank.

I'm also looking forward to using the Playbook as a video player on trips.
