iRex Iliad will be available for around 400 Euro

Now that it's getting close to its official unveiling, some more details on the iRex iLiad ER-100 e-book device are starting to trickle out.
  • Pricing: Daniela of DPA writes that the iLiad will cost around 400 Euro (USD $480), though she doesn't make it clear whether the price includes a subscription for the Belgian newspaper De Tijd.
  • Digital newspaper: According to project manager Peter Bruynseels, you can switch between a regular printed paper view, a headline view and a single-article view. Other features include access to latest financial news and interactive ads that vary according to the time of the day.
  • Battery: The battery is said to last for approximately 21 hours of use.
  • Memory: 224Mb of Flash memory is said to be sufficient for holding a month's worth of newspapers, plus 30 e-books, as well as office documents in different formats.
Also: It's a long-shot, but according to Russell J. Wilcox, chief executive of E Ink, E Ink technology with video and sound features is at most ten years off.
