Doubts about usability
I'm considering buying an Iliad. But I've some questions that are maybe trivial, maybe not.
- When I turn off the Iliad and later turn on, does it displays the page I was reading before?
- Or do I have to re-open de document and go throw it until I get to that page?
- Is there any function like "goto page x"?
- Can I search content into the documents?
All the above questions are for PDF documents which are my principal interest.
By the way, is there any suspend button, or only On/Off?
Thanks for all,

In answer to your questions:
Yes the reader will return to the last place you left each document - thus if you have many books on the go you will be returned back to the place you left off upon opening. It is worth noting that when you turn on the device you can choose where it returns to - it could be a specific folder (say your notes or your books) or perhaps you prefer recently read documents.
There is only an on/off button, for just reading the battery lasts 12-15 hours (for me at least)
There is no "goto page x" button but there is a PDF reader on these forums that adds the ability to bookmark pages within a PDF document. Also you can display page numbers at the bottom of the screen and click roughly when you want to go within a book or specifically with about 10-15 pages if you're already close.
In terms of search - for PDF there is no search within a document - however
Hope this helps.
