I don't think anybody has commented on this yet... but while my overall opinion of the ipod touch 4g is mixed I want to say it makes an AWESOME ebook reader. It is possible to view a full-size (one computer page size) pdf file on the screen. Now it is a bit small so it will probably be hard to read if it's more than a foot away from your face but the text does look very crisp. (Also if your eyes aren't that good this probably isn't a good ebook reader for you) Ditch ibooks... it's a piece of garbage. Download "mypdf" and use it instead. It works awesome. Now I have a bunch of old pdf books on my computer that I've been meaning to read for ages but I was unable to find a device that works well until the ipod. Even 300MB+ file sizes work perfectly well on the device (the files the size might take 1s to turn the page, which is not perfect but it is still good).
