Kindle emulator or somesuch?
Hi, I'm considering getting a e-reader soon and I'm wanting to get a idea of how various PDFs will look on them before I take the plunge (I read a lot of academic papers, this is mainly what I want one for).
I've downloaded the amazon kindle for pc thing though that seems to be just to view books from their store, I can't figure out anyway to put a pdf on it.
Does anyone know of any kindle emulator or somesuch for me to use?

The Kindle 4 app won't give you a good idea as to what a PDF will look like on the K3.

You could just order a Kindle and see for yourself. If it doesn't meet your requirements, you can return within 30 days and pay only shipping.

Amazon offers two software solutions for viewing AZW & MOBI ebooks, but nothing to simulate the Kindle's PDF experience.
The Amazon "Kindle 4 PC", other Kindle 4 ... viewers, are meant for reading and not to preview the Kindle hardware experience. The "Amazon Kindle Previewer" ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1000234621 , scroll down a bit) is designed to replicate the Kindle experience (K2 & DX at this time) for viewing AZW & MOBI format books, making it a good previewer for book developers, but doesn't include an emulator of either the PDF viewer or the K3's web browser.
