Question Replacing screen on the iLiad with Sony Reader screens

I know, I know. The iLiad's screen is a touchscreen while Sony's is not.
All I want to know is whether my PRS-500's screen will work on my iLiad.

Does anyone happen to know?

no, it won't....
the interface/connectors are different. And iRex uses different method/ driver IC's to driver their displays. Chances to get this working are 0.1%
