You all know CJ who has posted here for years. We're trying to determine some things about the look of photos in the older Kindle ink readers. It would really help if someone with a K1 unit could side-load her short mobi file and tell us what you see. Thanks:

I've got this kind of Kindle:

Is that the kind you mean?

No, sorry, that's a third generation. The first generation models were white and had an odd looking keyboard compared to the following generations. This is what they looked like:

Oh, right right. I have a friend with one of those, I think. Well, he used to have one, in any case. Not sure if he still does. But I can ask, if you'd like.

Sure; it couldn't hurt. Her mobi file is only a few pages long with pictures on every page. We just want to know if these large photos are scaling down to fit the screen correctly or if they're being cut-off at the sides. There have been several reports of them being cut-off, but not reliable ones.

OK, I'll shoot him an email. It's possible he's upgraded to a newer device, but it's free to ask.
