can iliad handle larger pdf-files of 10 to 20 mb?

hi,

i'm looking forward to buy an irex, mostly because i'm tired of the sony prs 505 performance of pdf's. what i mostly wish is to read my newspaper (as pdf) on my device.
here's my question: can the irex handle large files, say 10 or 20 mb's. the sony can't, you have to split the file into smaler parts in order to avoid a freeze of the system. most ebooks aren't very large, maybe that's so to provide a satisfying performance. but this is just a guess. anyone has experiences with larger files?

regards

Yes, 20 MB is no problem. Opening the pdf will take 10-20 Seconds.

File size is not a problem for iLiad. I have a 150mb pdf working on iLiad. But if one page of the file requires memory allocation more than iLiad can offer, iLiad might not be able to open it.

I don't dispute the above statements and fully expect the iLiad to handle very large files. I just want to add that on occasion I have seen a PDF load and then close. The second attempt always works. It isn't a chronic problem that has been distracting but one that has happened to me.
