I'm sorry, I might not have been clear enough. I was talking about
reading PDFs on a device with a screen of similar /size/ to the
Newton, and greyscale, my CyBook V3 ( which is a 4
shades of grey device, screen a little bigger than the Newt's. It has
PDF handling built in.

However, I did some poking around, and if you want to convert PDFs to
something the Newton can handle, perhaps try one of these:


They're printer drivers that save the printed page as image files
(jpeg, bmp, png, gif, etc.)

I recall someone saying they were working on a MobiPocket format
reader for the Newton. Did anything ever come of that, I wonder?
