Welcome to another Good e-Reader Video filmed at our new Studio in Vancouver, Canada! Today, Michael and Peter take a look at the PDF experience on the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.
The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has the highest resolution out of any tablet the Seattle based company has ever released. The average tablet is seven inches, and with almost two extra inches you have to wonder if the extra screen real estate makes a big difference with PDF files.
One of the rude awakenings we experienced with PDF Files is the aspect ratio issue. Whether your tablet is in landscape or portrait mode the PDF file will never take up the entire screen by default. Instead, you will have to pinch and zoom each page until you find that sweet spot. Check out the video below for the skinny on the situation.
