KindleDX Owner Please Try Reading this PDF

Hey,

I ordered my KindleDX, still waiting for it to arrive. I am desperate to find out how it handles reading the type of PDF files my lecturer has uploaded for us to read. Could someone with a KindleDX, please download a sample PDF file and tell me how it looks:

In addition to the above post, is their anyway to clean up these types of PDFs?? They have been crudely photocopied and scanned, thus no text recognizing, stanza nor calibre outputs anything when I input these files.

It's quite readable in landscape mode. However, in portrait mode, it is just technically "readable" - the font size is about half of the Kindle's smallest native font. A perfect example of why Amazon's decision to not implement zooming was a poor one.
