I've never owned or used one. I'm been looking into a low-end model, either a Kindle or Nook.I used it on Amazon Kindle and was not happy with the experience, the navigation through the pages (especially the ones with images and screenshots) is slow and it is hard to jump between the pages. Even the search feature was not as I expected. Since I got my Samsung Galaxy tab, I started using the PDF format which is incomparable with the Mobi/ePub format and I find it so easy reading the manuals and going through the pages.
I'd like to get some input on how well they work, especially how easy/difficult is it to navigate through large Oracle documents.
So you liked the PDF format better than mobi/ePub?Yes I do but I must say it is not just only about the PDF format as it is about the reader itself. I believe Amazon Kindle (and other mobi/ePub) readers are good for novels and documents with no screenshots or hyperlinks. I used the Amazon Kindle for reading non-Oracle books and I was happy with it and never had any complaints.
which is very nice! Don't know when that happened, but many thanks to Oracle for that. Some of them are very readable, and will be great on my DX, but lookup documents like the SQL Languange Quick Reference is not well suited. It won't be very quick ...
Mobile Formats Available Several documents are available in Mobipocket and ePub formats for convenient mobile viewing. Links to these formats are available from the upper-right corner of associated HTML pages.
