Well...hold your breath!

I have definite information!!!

The rumour about the delay due to hardware supplier problems is not true.

There is however some kind of problem with the "shopping baskedt" feature of the iRex webshop that is causing some delay. iRex believes that they will be able to fix it fast and taht the April release is still possible.

this information comes directly from Jörg Wrobel (www.ebookmedia.de) who seems to be well informed and was always right before. It's rather "fresh" info too, he sent the information to me at 17:33 (german time) and said it was "10 minutes old" (I guess he just called iRex that time).

I apologize for taking so long to bringt this info here, but I only got home at 21:30 and so had no chance to do so earlier. the person from iRex who said this was Mr. Ancin.

Here is the entire message from Jörg (I hope he doesn't mind if I post this...)

Hallo Herr Rohde,
das mit dem zulieferer ist nicht korrekt. es gibt lediglich leichte schwierigkeiten mit dem gerade in der einrichtungsphase befindlichen WARENKORB, also dem "shopping cart" des online shops. es soll allerdings laut herrn ancin von iRex rechtzeitig behoben werden, sodaß dem april launch nichts im wege steht. diese infos sind 10 minuten alt.


zu den proprietären formaten wird allerdings keine auskunft gegeben, was mich persönlich etwas ärgert. vielleicht ist es wegen der konkurrenz (sony) odr sollte ich besser sagen mitstreiter.


ich hoffe, dass ich sie mit meiner auskunft zufrieden stellen konnte.
übrigens war der online shop von sony, also der sony connect store bereits für ein paar stunden online, wahrscheinlich zu testzwecken, oder man wollte nur sehen wieviel user in welcher zeit auf die eröffnung warten.
ich denke irex ist die bessere partie.


alle sind gespannt auf iRex und den launch des Iliad ER 0100 und der shop eröffnung und vor allem die features, die Iliad zu bieten hat.


also, bis dann

It's in German, i'm too tired right now to translate, but I already pointed the relevant bit out.
