    Can it be switched from portrait to landscape as the Kindle can. Much easier to read in landscape on a small screen. And how many font sizes are there?

    Either these are photos of more than one machine or someone seriously needs to go on a photoshop course.

    When are they going to offer a reader with a larger screen so you can have a full page at 14 - 16 point type for the many older and other people for whom the type in both many print book and many electronic readers, especially on cell phones, are just too little to be useful? How about a large-screen Android or iPhone, too, that can reqd books?
