Q: Will be a "Development Package" for new Reader Series offered? [EDIT:] YES!
Q: "Printing to iLiad" is a windows thing, right?

Prices are:
499,- Euro for the 1000
599,- Euro for the 1000S
??? for the 1000SW

And iRex said that a developer package will be available for the DR series aswell.

What was done to make the screen more robust than on the v2?

How has the interface changed to allow for the lack of a touch screen on the 1000? A screenshot of Mobipocket Reader would be nice, looking up words in the dictionary, changing font size, and accessing the TOC all previously required the stylus.

Here is a question to ask. Is the touchscreen option merely for taking notes, or does it provide a touch interface for the readers. In other words, can I do menu navigation via touch on the touchscreen models, or is it merely a note taking add-on?

"All readers will include 1GB of storage memory"
That's less than than the current machines with th CF slot, which seems to have been dropped.
1GB is a lot of storage for reading material, but small compared to current SDHC cards. I wonder why the new machine won't support larger cards.

Second Question. Is the SD interface SD only or does it permit SDHC cards?

I think that means it will come with a 1GB SD card. I'm not sure about SDHC support, but I assume it should work with larger cards using the SD standard.

Aside from Office and PDF, any dedicated e-book format ? ePub, Mobipocket ?

It looks very business-oriented, just like Plastic Logic's device.

When the screen breaks (as it surely will), will it cost EUR350 and take 10 weeks for Irex to fix it ?

Will Irex fulfil their promises to support the development community, or leave them in the lurch again ?

Will the lamentably bad standard software on the existing devices be upgraded ?

Have Irex worked suspend mode out yet ?
