iRex DR800S ab sofort erhältlich

Ich wurde am Wochenende von folgender Pressemitteilung überrascht:

IREX TECHNOLOGIE BRING LEEK DR800 EREADER TO EUROPEAN MARKET
EIN HOVEN,January 13,2010 – IREX Technologies has unveiled the R800S,the company ’s newest addition to its innovative line of eReaders.The 8.1-inch touch-screen device boasts a sleek design,easy-to-use interface and open DRM policy – it will be available January.18 in stores (amongst others Mediamarkt,FNAC and Selexyz)throughout Germany,France,Spain,Italy,Greece,the Netherlands,
Belgium and the UK and online in the IREX Web shop (www.irexshop.com).
Users simply connect the device to a PC,quickly purchase and upload a book or periodical from a range
of content providers.A unique screen surface differentiates the R800S from competitive devices,and
delivers a natural reading experience in the living room,on the train or in a coffee shop.
“The R800S offers a powerful combination of distinctive design and functionality that make it so good
at what it ’s built to do – providing users a true reading experience that far eclipses what they ’d get from
a multifunction device,” said Hans Brons,founder and CEO,IREX Technologies.
IREX ’s open-RM policy grants users the freedom to choose where they purchase books,magazines or
newspapers.The R800S supports multiple formats,including the industry standard ePub,rather than a
single,“closed ” proprietary format that locks content in to a device.
The R800S will be taken to market in cooperation with the largest European specialist distributor of
ebook readers,istriread (www.distriread.com).
Key product specifications
The R800S features:
• Big screen,compact design –An 8.1-inch screen is larger than that of many of its competing
products,making the R800S ideal for reading books,magazines and newspapers with detailed
graphics.
• Purpose-built device – With IREX ’s electronic paper display technology using E Ink ’s Vizplex
imaging film,the reading experience on the R800S is significantly more realistic than possible
with a netbook or tablet device.The display also allows for longer battery life and a lightweight
design.
• Easy navigation – Navigation is simple with the device ’s interactive touch screen and
straightforward buttons.Pages turn faster;search and bookmarking are made easy with a tap of
the stylus.
• Customized reading – With the touch of a button,text size is easily reduced or enlarged,margin
widths can be changed and layout can be switched between portrait and landscape.
• Transfer your documents – Copy or transfer documents directly to the device without
additional software or fees.
Other IREX products include:
R1000S :eReader with 10.2 ” diagonal screen-size for business professionals and education
R800SG:leisure reading device with built-in 3G module (US market only)
iLiad 2
nd
Edition:eReader with built-in 802.11g WiFi interface
iLiad Book Edition
Price and Availability
The device will sell for Euro 499/GBP 449,including VAT,and comes with a custom cover and stylus.

Die Erklärung habe ich eben bekommen

Thank you for showing interest in our product.

The DR800S is now available, and can be bought at our webshop.
http://www.irexshop.com.

Mediamerkt DE is not selling our device, the first Mediamarkt where you
can buy it is Mediamarkt NL.

I hope this information is sufficient, if there are any questions don't
hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
iRex Technologies

Wie schön, daß ich sozusagen in der Nachbarschaft wohne.

Ich glaube, ich bin sehr glücklich, der Versuchung widerstanden und nicht sofort einen DR800S bei Irex geordert zu haben...

Einige MR-User haben gestern ihre Geräte erhalten und die ersten Reviews veröffentlicht, erstaunlicherweise gibt es wohl einige nicht unbedeutende Nachteile:

- Keine Ordnerfunktionalität (also keine Unterordner etc.)
- Kein Zoomfunktion wie im Iliad oder automatisch wie im Kindle DX
- keine Mobi-Unterstützung mehr
- keine Notiz-Funktion
- Stift hat keine Halterung im Gerät
- Leder-Cover, daß extra gekauft werden muss, sieht billig aus

Unverständlich, daß Irex hier mal wieder mit einem halbgaren Release auftritt, den schlechten Eindruck wiegt auch die gute Verarbeitung der Hardware und die unbestreitbar gute Qualität des Display nicht auf...

Ich warte jetzt auf den Kindle 3...

Of what part of this now rather obsolete thread (with iRex gone bancrupt and not selling any longer and being replaced by IRX) in particular do you want an english explanation? Could be done if you'd care to tell us .

Edit: Hier wurde ein zwischenstehender Spam-Post durch Mod entfernt. Bitte weitersurfen. Nix los hier.
