CNET.co.uk gives iRex iLiad a 7.5 (a very good)

The UK edition of CNET has finally gotten hold of the iRex iLiad reader, and despite being mainstream (i.e. slow in adopting to new technologies), they gave the iLiad a suprisingly positive review. Their conclusion:

Quote:
The iLiad has some great features, such as the amazing screen and extremely long battery life -- it really is a delight to use for reading books or documents. The Wi-Fi functionality needs to be improved, though, and iRex needs to develop better PC software for managing the device. The price tag is also somewhat on the hefty side when you consider you can pop down to your local Tesco and pick up a full blown laptop for the same kind of money.

Although there were a lot of things we liked about the iLiad, unfortunately it still has some way to go before it'll have us chucking our books on the bonfire and cancelling our newspaper subscriptions.

It's interesting how people who haven't seen the Sony Reader think the iLiad has outstanding battery life, while those who have think it's horrible. Perhaps you get spoiled by the always-on features of the sony.

I guess they're looking at it from the viewpoint of a notebook/tablet PC, compared to which the battery life is outstanding. That's certainly the way that I view it.
