There was one final preliminary task I wanted to do as a basic introduction to this tablet, and that was to look at ebooks.
It is very easy to read an ebook on this device, and resizing the text is quite simple; contrast is good; and scrolling from page-to-page seamless (although some pages take awhile to load -- that's probably the wireless). But downloading the book seems impossible. Adobe Digital Edition software is required and there is no app for that available. So I'll have to be satisfied with reading online vs downloading, which is fine.
All for now.
