    Hey Tai, turn this thing on
    What ya mean? It's already on!
    Huh? Wow!
    It looks exactly like a book, unlike a digital device at all

    Friend 2: It's portable, I like it
    Friend 1: Ain't it too small?
    I: If it's too small you can try DX
  • 4. Display
    Predictably, only black and white. Expect color in near future
    Page transition isn't very smooth
    PDF files can be copied to Kindle via USB or sent via Wi-Fi. But font size need to be enlarged in computer before being copied to Kindle
    Graphs and formula are very well displayed
    Graph process is slow
    Landscape mode
    Kindle can't improve scanned PDF quality
    You still need to use light in darkness
    Reading under sunlight is great, no reflection
