Can I read Japanese text with it?
I have a lot of japanese scientific papers in pdf form that I'd like to read with the new sony reader. i was wondering if the reader can actually display japanese characters.
this file (http://monarch.gsu.edu/WebRoot$/multiculturalhealth/handouts/japanese/Japanese_all.pdf) is a random japanese pdf -- it would be a big help if one of you guys could try out to open it with the reader. maybe you could even take a picture while the japanese text is onscreen....
i'm located in europe and i can't try it out myself but before i shell out $350 i wanna be sure.

If it's a PDF, then you won't have a single problem displaying japanese text. But for the other formats, until there's an easy way to add font to the reader, I don't think it'll be possible to display japanese.

Other than using the utilities to add a new font to the Reader, the only way to view documents with a Japanese font is by using a PDF file with embedded fonts as Hadrien mentioned. The problem with that on the Sony Reader is that it resizes PDF pages to fit the 6.1" screen rendering normal A4 or letter sized pages almost unreadable. If you can create the PDFs sized to the Reader it should work fine.
