I was wondering about that too. Assuming this is actually real, and they are planning on a Fall 2009 release, you'd think they would have pictures available. I'd like to see some confirmation from iRex that this is a real product. The only thing they've hinted at on their site is that they're working on a color eInk device for 2011. I've never seen any mention of a new consumer level device for 2009.
That might be because they don't want to impact the iLiad sales by making an official announcement this early. I would assume that the iLiad is likely to be discontinued when the new device is released (assuming it exists).
