Post IREX receives 2009 3G CDMA award for the DR800SG

Quote:
-- Innovation in Consumer Entertainment Services Development: IREX
Technologies
- Given to the application developer or content provider that
has developed innovative and appealing entertainment
applications or services.
- The IREX Digital Reader DR800SG features an 8.1-inch stylus
touchscreen and high-speed access to an enormous selection
of digital books and other titles from Barnes & Noble's
ebook store via EV-DO broadband data connectivity. The
device has 2GB of memory to store up to 1,500 books, which
can be purchased over-the-air along with newspapers and
magazines from a wide variety of sources. In addition, IREX
supports multiple formats, including the industry standard
ePub display format and multiple digital rights management
(DRM) solutions, rather than a single, "closed" proprietary
format that locks content to a specific device.
This is from this press release: 2009 3G CDMA Industry Achievement Awards Presented by the CDMA Development Group

Now if they will just release the darn thing.

Have they made an official announcement of that date? Mid-November wasn't official either.

don't say that, you'll make me cry. I have to wait for a Canadian release AFTER the U.S. release, so already I think I'm just going to ask for a prepaid VISA card for christmas or something in lieu of the reader

I don't know that I would call it "official", however, it did come from an IREX exec in a private email to me.

With the Kindle going from Sprint's CDMA to AT&T's GSM, Irex is pretty much the only name on the ballot...

The cynic in me says that, with world + dog now using GSM, the "CMDA Development Group" would give an award to anyone who went with their technology .

New (and very unreliable) rumor

Sounds like fun to me. I'm still waiting... not too patiently. There are a lot of new and interesting devices out there soon. I still love the 8.1" Iliad screen, even though now I have to turn mine on and off with a straightened out paperclip and it skips four pages at a time once in a while. And nothing I have seen matches the IREX.

Maybe we should start a rumor that the first thousand to visit Best Buy and show an interest in the DR800SG get one free. How about THAT for a rumor!

I actually heard it was the first 1500 and that it also came with a B&N coupon for free books for a year!
