Newspapers put E Ink readers on trial
Last week, the first twenty-five readers of the Belgian financial newspaper De Tijd received a trial device of the iRex iLiad reader, enabling them to download and read the most recent e-paper edition of the title through bluetooth, wireless or by hotspots. Another 175 readers will soon follow the three-month trial. Meanwhile, according to the International Herald Tribune, other newspapers are keeping a close eye on the new paperless technology:
Related: Last year the eNews initiative was brought to life to promote e-paper technologies and to bring publishers and technology companies together. The participating publishing members are: Bonnier/Expressen (Sweden), De Telegraaf (the Netherlands), Edipresse Publications (Switzerland), Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH & Co. (Germany), New York Times Company (U.S.A.), Nordjyske Medier (Denmark), Orkla Media (Norway), La Parisienne (France), PrisaCom/El Pais (Spain), Rheinische Post (Germany), Sanoma Corp. (Finland), Schibsted/Aftonbladet (Norway and Sweden), Stampen/Göteborgs-Posten (Sweden), Styria Medien (Austria), Tamedia AG (Switzerland), Telegraph Group (U.K.), Tribune Interactive (U.S.A.), Voralberger Zeitungsverlag und Druckerei (Austria), Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany), Yomiuri Shimbun (Japan).

How to become part of the trial?
Does anyone know how to become part of the NY Times trial? I currently subscribe to the electronic edition of the Times to read on my tablet pc. I would love to communicate my interest in being part of the trial to the newspaper. Does anyone know how one can go about doing so?

Can someone call one of those "testers" over here to give a statement on the useability of the Iliad?
It would be nice to hear some real "hands-on" for a change.
Branko's review was very cool, but now we're talking about actual finished products...at least they should be.
