iRex iLiad featured in Channel4 clip

Turn up your Windows Media player to view the following 3:30mins video clip (direct link) on e-paper and the iLiad iRex in particular. It's amazing to watch this guy from Plastic Logic hitting the prototype of a flexible e-paper with his shoe, like, there is nothing better you could do with it. Some screen captures attached for those who cannot play Windows Media files.

Edit: Somehow I must've missed it that our savvy reader masc pointed to the same clip a few days ago.

Quote:
It could mean a revolution for the publishing business - its called electronic paper - a computer device that can hold one hundred books or receive a newspaper downloaded to it while you sit on the train. But instead of a flickering computer screen to give you a headache, the makers claim its just like reading from normal paper. British consumers get their first chance to buy the product within the next couple of weeks. But are we really ready to say goodbye to the traditional book?

Alexander, it was a good idea to open a fresh new thread with this link [previously posted].

Q: Is there a way to download this video? Or is it a streaming video only?

# iliad in TV news -> web shop opening is near.

edit: Plastic Logic’s Prototype Images Looks great.

You can now use VLC or mplayer for Linux to play above clip directly.

Did anyone notice the "Planet PDF" logo that was displayed on most pages?

Does this have anything to do with

http://www.planetpdf.com

and does anyone know the connection?

Just to keep the discussion going...:-)

By the way:
Did you see the Sudoku game? I wonder how you play that...to make it work properly you'd need either keyboard input, text recognition or multiple choice pulldown menus.
Due to the fact that all the options mentioned above are highly unlikely, I guess it's like real "pena nd paper" sudoku where you have to do your own thing and don't have any computerized help and/or correction features.

Any news on deals with more real publishers for the Iliad? That is the only reason right now to prefer the Sony (aside from cost). If IRex can come up with content equal to Sony, Sony will have serious cause for concern. If I were Sony, I would get my butt in gear and get the Reader released (yesterday would no be too soon) before all the early adopters buy an Iliad!

They keep very quiet about this, but it seems true that they are in discussion with iRex to port their reader to the iLiad.

"We still don't have the confirmation, but it's on the good path."

PlanetPDF CEO Karl De Abrew saw the iRex displayed at the Adobe Acrobat and PDF Conference.

"My jaw nearly hit the ground when I saw one of the Planet PDF's Project Gutenberg eBooks displayed in a prototype version of an iLiad ER0100 from iRex Technology -- an offshoot from Royal Philips Electronics, located on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. As you may or may not know, Planet PDF was quite involved in the eBook world back in 2000/2001 and even ran a sister site which is still available in archive form called Planet eBook. I really recommend that you drop by iRex's Web site and take a look at their device, I've heard (but can't confirm) that it's going to be selling for a few hundred US dollars per unit."

The discussion raging on the Mobipocket boards seems to indicate that there are no plans to port the Desktop Reader to Linux, but i am rather sure that the device Reader part will be ported.
