The details are still pretty slim, but it seems that iRex
is finally kicking into overdrive to deliver the iLiad device into the B2B world. MobileRead member Martijn sent us a link to a Dutch article
and he also kindly provided us with the following English summary:
- Starting in May 2007, electronic editions of two Dutch newspapers (NRC Handelsblad and De Volkskrant) will become available on the iLiad device.
- iRex hopes to raise additional capital, either in a new financing round, or possibly (emphasis on possibly) by going public.
- 10'000 iLiad were sold last year and the company hopes to sell 100'000 units this year.
- iRex is in negotiation with airlines companies such as KLM Royal Dutch to get their flight personnel to use the iLiad.
