Test PDF Content

Hi!

I want to read into Blackberry development and look for an ebook reader that could handle the pdf documentation from Blackberry itself.

Could anyone do me a big favour and check out, if the Sony PRS-505 can handle the pdf's good enough and delivers a good reading experience.

For example this document:

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/develo....0_Beta-US.pdf

Is the PRS-505 able to handle the display of source code and bigger documents? This would be great as the Sony PRS-505 promises a very good value of money.

Hi,

unfortunately fixed size A4- or Letter-PDFs don't look that good on the PRS505 because of the small screen. There is zoom-functionality built in, but it completely destroys the formatting, so it isn't that useful for cases where you need formatted text, like with code (see the third picture).
