How likely will Irex implement PDF zoom?

Although, I am interested in the screen quality and its 8" inch display. I'll probably stay on the side line for now.

Last I saw they were saying that it hasn't been decided yet. One of their developers was asking in another thread for people to post what their use-case was for zoom vs reflow. The more feedback we can give them on that, hopefully the more it will be taken into consideration.

I forgot to add one other major figure that is missing is "annotation". I think if they implement those two figures. I am ready to buy today.

There will probably be 3rd parties selling their own versions at some point though (M-Edge, etc)...

Edit:
I guess it didn't take long. There's already an ebay auction for one.

Note, this is a soft cover. IMO, for eInk screens you really want a rigid cover to protect the screen.

The Best Buy version comes with a protective sleeve for the device. You can order the leather cover direct from irex via their website shop. Reports on this board seem to indicate the leather cover is not worth the price due to poor quality and workmanship.

From the picture, the stylus is attached outside of the protective sleeve. It is not a safe place. the Stylus may miss soon.

From reading mgmueller's review, the leather cover he ordered from Irex wasn't very good.
