Irex Iliad too expensive. Don't even think about it.
Jinke Hanlin eReader is better choice for right now. if you live in HK, you probably can read chinese. V3 can support traditional format which is benefit for you.

http://www.ereader.com is where you can find the eReader software. Once there, you should be able to find what devices the software runs on so you can purchase a compatible device.

The V3 or for that matter an other eink reading devices do not support eReader format. Hence why they are not called eReaders. I know you've used the term eReader to mean electronic reader. But eReader is the brank name for eReader format books and the program to read these books. This is a program/format created for Palms. By using the term incorrectly, you may end up giving others the thought that the V3 can read this format when in fact, it cannot.

I ordered direct from Jinke to Hong Kong. Total cost including delivery and bank charges worked out at about HK$2700. Quite easy and quick, I thought about buying direct from a shop but it's not worth an extra $1200.

Absolutely loving my V3 so far!
