Question PRS-650 or K3 for PDF viewing?

Hi,

I know that both devices are not optimised for PDF viewing and require zooming and panning to read PDFs. However, I have a question to the people who have been able to try both devices: which one is the best for PDF viewing in term of interface?

Many thanks in advance.

Afaik K3 only displays PDFs as is, Sony also has "reflow". And maybe these pictures (by Theonna @ mobileread) will help you choose:

In total agreement with kartu.

The 6" Sonys are considerably better suited to PDF reading than Amazon's 6" offering, in my opinion. Reflow is better supported, and navigation of image-based PDFs is more comfortable.

Thanks a lot.

How the reflow makes PDF reading so much better? I looked at the pictures and it was not clear to me the PDF on the Kindle was not readable. Are there other reasons, such as the zooming and page navigation handling? I mean is it easier to change columns in the Sony that is not practical with the K3?

Thanks.
