So, each page has about 2/3 of the reflowable text of the 6" Reader screens. This checks out mathematically too--the display area ratio is 5^2/6^2, or 25/36, about 2/3! Text appears to be the same size on the 505 and 300, so legibility is identical.
Very cool! This is something I was wondering--whether it would just be a shrunken version of the 505's display, or if it would keep text the same size, but wrap it differently. Glad it's the latter. Thanks for the great writeup. Enjoy your new toy!
