No doubt the gadget blogs & goofyereader will wax lyrical and ignore the shortcomings (too big for ebooks, no handwritting conversion) and fail to say it's brilliant for proofing or reading PDFs (which are not true ebooks) and otherwise nearly pointless for ebooks and writing (an 8" Kobo Sage is far better).

Still to be answered: Kindle Print Replica and fixed layout Amazon sales not supported on any prior eink Kindle ever.
Too be brilliant for proofing or reading PDFs it should offer as good pdf capabilities as Onyx readers (all the necessary cropping modes, multiple tabs for simultaneously opened pdfs, decent speed at reaching the bookmarked pages etc.)

There's been a report that PDF documents w/ tables are not handled well --- really curious about what aspect of their PDF handling is the cause of that and if/when/how it will be addressed.

I saw that, but it's really necessary to examine the PDF in question. I doubt 'all PDFs with tables' are problematic. You might find there's a lot of 'junk PostScript' in there, which is causing these performance issues.

PDFs don't have "junk PostScript", they have PDF object(s) which may or may not have been made w/ PostScript code, and possibly PostScript XObjects which are intentionally created and placed in the stream of other objects and which certain PDF renderers (usually on imagesetters) could make use of, unless the software doing the distilling to PDF is either technically wrong and not adhering to the PDF specification, or maliciously hiding PS code (though w/o a Display PostScript or other PS interpreter, I fail to see the usage in doing so).

How tables are constructed in a PDF (or designed for that matter) can vary pretty wildly, and apparently there is some added tagging involved in PDFs being sent to the KS via e-mail so that they can be marked up (perhaps a resurrection of the "Print Replica" format?).

Once I get mine, I'll see if such files can be transferred off, and start disassembling them (Fortunately the PDF spec is available: https://opensource.adobe.com/dc-acro...ence1.7old.pdf and https://web.archive.org/web/20220306..._17_errata.pdf --- though why those twain couldn't be integrated into a single updated document, I'll never understand).
