More details for the txtr emerge!

A new press release from the makers of the txtr just arrived and gives us some more tidbits of information.

The most important news here is that txtr will be cooperating with e-plus and ecotel to bring Kindle-like on-the-go bookshopping capabilities to the txtr.
No exact details like prices and terms of use have surfaced yet, but the news that somebody has managed to form this kind of deal in Germany is already quite an amazing feat in itself!

The other exciting news is that the txtr will be launched on the Franfurt Book Fair on the 14. of Octobre 2009. All information about prices, subsription fees and content will become available then. It's another date to look forward to!

The attached .pdf is in german, if somebody feels like translating it he's welcome to...

According to the attached PDF 3G will work only in Germany at the beginning, because Eplus and Ecotel are german firms.
