A hilarious concept, very authentically executed. Love it

Really well done. Not a device built for reading, but I really like how this looks. Great work!

Back in these days I really used to read books on small screens, although not quite this small: some of the larger Nokia phones such as the E50. This is impeccably presented, but obviously one of the things that it demonstrates is that the screen's too small for reading :-) I can imagine an ebook reader being just baaaarely acceptable on a 84x48 screen, with a smaller-but-still-readable font; the Nokia font isn't that, but I appreciate that part of your motivation here was to get to use the font again! This font on a screen twice the size would be a good reading thing (for someone as obsessive about reading as I was and remain); it's too big for more than three words or so on this screen. But this is delightfully presented even as it remains a quixotic demonstration of why it itself never existed :-)

Really nice font for reading.
