Yes it seems good but what pdf viewer i will have with a device like this. Would be suitable for annotations. The only viewer that i know for annotations is the foxit reader. In q7 how i make annotations in pdf?

Hi

For devices with windows xp tablet, windows vista or windows 7 - tabletpcs and umpcs -, you have several solutions that let one use the pen for annotation, here you have some examples:

1 - Pdf Annotator - http://ograhl.com/en/pdfannotator/
2 - BlueBeam Revu - http://www.bluebeam.com
3 - Autoink pdf annotation plug-in - http://www.evermap.com/autoink.asp

Best regards,

Best regards,
This post makes me want to clarify what was unspoken in my previous advice: that if you're going UMPC, i.e., Windows, then we're now in the realm where we'd prefer inking. That is, you'd prefer to annotate using natural handwriting and scribbles, like #1 and #3 in the above list of recommendations. Those inking products make use of the inking capabilities found in XP Tablet, Vista (except Home), and Windows 7.

If you're not going the UMPC/Windows route, and instead are going e-ink like the Kindle DX, then your expectations are lowered, and typewritten annotation is good enough.

Here's another option to add to DDHarriman's list:
4 - The new Evernote/Foxit annotation app.
This also will likely require XP Tablet, Vista, or Windows 7. Evernote in the past have made stand-alone programs (old Evernote and old RitePen) that worked with XP Pro, an OS that has no Tablet functions. But recently they've put that behind them and are requiring a Windows version with tablet functionality.

FBreader is included I believe http://www.fbreader.org/about.php. My device (Q7) is due delivery to me today Fri 26 June UK time so I cannot test it just yet but maybe over the week-end.

EDIT: FBreader is for ebooks not pdf's. xournal will let you markup pdfs (courtesy of jrj)

Hi,
I've got the Samsung Q1, which has the 7' display.
It's possbile to read PDfs, but it's no fun at all.
In Landscape view, you have to scroll way too intensively.
In Portrait view, 1024 x 600 simply isn't sufficient.

"realize that your pc reader probably has more options for displaying and zooming the pdf". This I don't quite understand.
An UMPC is a standard (Windows) PC, ypu easily can install Acrobat or whatever you want.
Performance isn't great, my Samsung Q1 for example is a 1.3 GHz unit.
But performance, even for huge PDFs (> 100MB) usually won't be the problem.
It's really all about display size...
