Should i buy Arnova 10 G2 (dispite the problems and diagonal stripes on display) or wait for 9 G2 ? will the pdfs be displayed more "normally" on a 4:3 ration screen?
I didn't have any trouble with my 10g2 and the "stripes" aren't noticible. The only negative for 10g2 is the substandard screen, but I knew this was the tradeoff for a cheap price. The 9g2 is supposed to have a very crisp screen, and I would love to have that instead if the price was right.
Isn't the 9 closer to the actual aspect ratio of pdf pages? You can do the math, once you subtract a bit for a status bar at the top. I hate reading pdf, so can't tell you too much about how it works on 10g2 except you waste screen space due to aspect ratio and the fonts get smaller as a result. The bad viewing angles and lack of crispness is less of a problem with black and white.
