rotating page into sony prs 600 + reading scientific papers

Hi All
Sony touch version of its ereader looks nice, but compared to Kindle I notice that there is no chance to ROTATE the page (neither Text To Speech..too bad).

Anyone can confirm this? I looked to use manual and it seems so.

What if I have to read a technical papers with formula and charts?
I think that rotating the page would help..any one reads any scientific papers on Sony prs 600? In a previous post I saw someone posting pictures but using Bebook.

Thanks
Mnstn

I see that you're mentioning scientific papers here. In my opinion, no 6" display can display scientific papers adequately. You need a larger screen for that. I am going on the assumption that these technical papers you are referring to are PDF. If so, you definitely need a larger screen. If you must use a 6" display, you will probably need to manipulate the PDF so that it can fit into the 6" display in landscape mode. I don't have any Sony readers but this is the same method I use with my 6" Astak Mentor.
