Telegraph review of the iLiad
Telegraph reviewed the iLiad: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/connected...dlclaud107.xml
"Where the Iliad scores - and this is presumably the reason for the extra weight it is carrying - is its interactivity. Unlike my minimalist Cybook, it comes with a stylus that can be used for navigation or for making notes, either in separate documents or on the texts themselves - great for those who like to scribble all over their books."
"At the moment, the Iliad feels like a prototype that needs a lot more development. Whether it gets it depends on how popular e-readers become - and currently the signs are not hopeful."

The Telegraph stopped producing the (free) pdf version of their paper a while ago. Pity, because it worked well on the Illiad. No wonder there aren't that many newspapers to read on the Iliad...
Paul Gent must be a bit of weekling to find the Iliad heavy. I use my nearly everyday on the Tube, and its doesn't cause me any strain or hassle. Can't be too bright either, since the manual leads you through how it works.
But it seems a fairly typical review of the Iliad (or any e-reader) by an Old Media Journalist. Burn the Devil Machine that can put us out of business. The lack of accuracy is revealing. In this world of Google it would take minutes to find out that you can only write on pdf's. He'd also find out, if he read the Wikipedia page, that the Iliad is also sold online...
The entire review seems to be little more than FUD from someone who has built his career on an business model that will swiftly disappear if barmy notions like the Iliad take off. Switch to New Media, Paul, then you could use this thing to the Internet and stop making a fool of yourself...!
