Irex was sending me an email concerning the introduction of their newest reader - the DR800S.
The shipping starts on Monday, 18th January, the device will be cheaper than the iLiad - in the iRex shop its for 419 Euro.
Its similar to the iLiad, but its supporting PDF, epub and Barnes and Nobles format. Apparently it doesnt support mobipocket anymore.
Further details can be found on https://www.irexshop.com/
I found nothing about internet connection and although I paid some weeks ago 200 Euro more for my iLiad I'm happy with it because the new device doesnt support mobipocket.
