If I had the iLiad I wouldn't hang around on the Net but would start to read my 92745982345243 e-books that I've always wanted to read

What do you think?
Quite possible. My secret hope is that they are waiting on Mobipocket and legally can't tell us till the deal is sealed.

Edit:

Oooh. Check this quote from Angel Ancin at iRex Technologies posted at www.teleread.org

"Main reason for delay is e-commerce problems (technical delays in the webshop itself) and inclusion of additional software goodies to be announced. (Unfortunately, I can not disclose yet)"

I really hope those "goodies" include Mobipocket.

I would be perfectly happy to wait until August provided that they gave us a great final product. My only beef would be if the reasons they give us were less than honest. So far I see no evidence on this, hence my speculating on it. I look for this standard in any company I purchase from and am not saying Irex is guilty of it.

We are delayed. The new date is expected throughout May.

Main reason for delay is e-commerce problems (technical delays in the webshop itself) and inclusion of additional software goodies to be announced. (Unfortunately, I can not disclose yet)

Most likely around May 10th, we will (finally) start actively using our website for communication.

We will confirm the list of countries and launch dates soon in that environment.

Please check regularly www.irextechnologies.com from the first week of May onwards.

I think it will be first of May .... 2007 :-)

What´s about Sony ...

Mobipocket has a special version of their reader for the Pepper Pad (mentioned somewhere in their forum).
