I imagine there is a .cbr reader for android, but has anyone read any comics on the device? Is the screen decent/big enough to read a full page without scrolling down?

I don't have .cbr files but I'm using this app for .rar and .zip works very well.http://comicroid.kojin.biz/index_e.php

I'm reading comics on my android netbook. It has the same screen size and resolution (7" 800*480) and it is OK to read them in landscape, but you have to scroll down to read a whole page. I can live with that.

Actually, .cbr files files are .rar files and .cbz files are .zip files. You have only chance the file extension.

CBRs and CBZs work just fine, and look pretty good on the Eken.
