It seems you guys have an inside track on some of this stuff. My questions are fairly straight forward as someone who wants this technology, has money to spend now, have an immediate need to read in many different locations:
1. What will the cost be when they finally ship (final number not some range)
2. Probability of getting a unit prior to September 2006?
3. What is the probability of shipping to consumers in September 2006?
4. What is the probability of shipping to consumers in December 2006?
5. Who are the B2B partners (besides those mentioned on the website) to attempt to circumvent the consumer route delay?
Evaluating a Micron tablet PC and will go that route if the answers to my questions above are not satisfactory, will just bite the bullet on cost, reading stress and low battery life. Gotta have an answer by end of June!

iRex gave the price as 549,- Euro + VAT + shipping might change though

I would say very slimm unless you are a customer of their B2B partners.
Quote:
3. What is the probability of shipping to consumers in September 2006?
I would guess about 75%. Since the devices are done, and its enough time to update the OS. On the other hand i think they wait and see how it goes with their B2B partners. If it doesnt, they might just not sell to consumers at all because of warranty issues.

If its not done in September, then it probably wont ship ever. so 1%

Other than the mentioned ones. I dont know.

Cannot answer for sure, but check out this thread for participating publishers, including those who are going to launch further trials with the iLiad.

Just so say that tomorrow is a holiday here in Portugal, and so i'll finally have some free time to make the videos, take more pictures.

Just post what you would like to see, and when i come back on friday i'll upload them somewhere.

I'd like to see some screen refresh action mainly...but actually the vids aren#t too important for me...
But thanks anyway...

Did you receive any new sotware updates for your Iliad? How's battery life now? Those are questions i'd be much more interested in...^^

Not yet.

The "final" OS should be released in the last week of this month if everything is going ok.

I'll have to send an email to see how things are going...

Finally lose the notepad to keep track of the pages i'm reading

Too bad the software companies took this long just to implement these features...

I suppose you'll have to use the stylus since its a wacom penabled...the tech is in the pen, not the screen which makes the screen a lot more resistant than a normal touchscreen bu also prevents you from using your finger...^^

Yep, you need to use the stylus. In the beginning i wondered if using the fingers wouldn't add value, but using just the stylus is "cleaner"
