505 pdf viewing

I have BIG IT technical books, that came with pdf copys on CD.

I want to know how well i can view them, i heard that it can look a bit too small to read, but that rotating helps. If u rotate the screen, surely u can't scroll down the page can you???

the pages in the pdf that i want to use are 19x24cm in size.

How have other people found the formating of pdf books to be.
(I don't want to reformat the PDFs because i need to be sure the diagrams are all perfect)

A4 pdfs and 6" ebook readers do not go along.

I will be surprised if you are successful in the long run with such a small screen. Let us know if it really works as well as you think it will.

In most of the case, you should convert the PDF file using PDFLRFwin.
If you directly upload the pdf file to your reader without converting,
the resolution will be very poor, but after converting with pdflrf_win,
you would have no problem for reading whether it is IEEE journal paper or IT
technical book.
