De Tijd and iRex to launch digital paper delivery service

The Belgian newspaper De Tijd has partnered with iRex Technologies to offer digital newspaper content. The trial project starting March 2006 will include 200 participants who can download the content through a wireless Internet connection and read it on the forthcoming iRex iLiad e-book device. On the off-chance that you've spent the last few weeks living under a rock, let me tell you that the iLiad reader boasts an 8.1-inch E Ink display and can be used to read, well, e-books. E Ink is a thin, flexible polymer sheet that rivals real ink on paper for contrast and ease of reading. Buziaulane adds more to the story:

The newspaper is loaded into the tablet and can be displayed as a full page. With a stylo stories can be selected and zoomed-in. Pages can be turned. Here is the nice feature: the screen is only using power, when an action is taken (zoom-in or zoom-out) or a page is turned.
