Sony's Digital Comics Reader, the application you'll need to read with, will flick through pages and zoom and pan with ease. It is already available, and Sony suggests downloading the latest PSP firmware and installing this to be prepared.

To quote: Surveys were sent out with the following video (see below) attached.
Though the online "comic shop" is new, viewing comics on your PSP is old hat and rather frustrating, though not nearly as much as trying to read web pages on it. What this service/function needs is an auto "frame go-to and re-sizer". Perhaps it has one, but I couldn't gleem one from the video.
I say it every time when there's a PSP story and I'm saying it again,... stop adding stupid stuff to the PSP when all I really want is a second analog stick!
