iRex next-gen e-book reader based on e Ink

iRex is not some kind of meat-eating dinosaur with sharp seven-inch long teeth, but the presumed name of a next-gen e-book reading device based on E Ink technology. Henrycat digged out some mouth-watering details for us:
  • Reflective 8.1-inch XGA (1024x768 => 160dpi!) E Ink screen
  • 16 grey scales (versus 4 grey scales of the Sony Librie)
  • Rechargable battery (lasts for one week when reading 3hrs/day)
  • Wifi + USB connectivity
  • Distributed by iRex Technologies bv, a Philips spinoff
  • Release date set for 2006

Update:
  • Touch-screen display
  • SD and CF card support

Thanks henrycat!
