I don't think so.
There is one device up on ebay....but it's pretty expensive...900€ and the seller is a newbie...^^

But you could register your email address with iRex and write to them, saying that you would like to buy one despite the fact that the software isn't quite done yet...then you might get lucky...and if you have a business email adress you can use that...

I saw that one... If he had at least 5 positive feedbacks... But it's 250€ over the original price - ARGH

Also tried this. No answer 'til now. I even HAVE a business... It's no content creation, but... I really want this device. Don't matter if the software is perfect. At least it shows PDFs...

In my order history on the Irex shop, there was the URL of a Spanish distributor of the Iliad www.leer-e.com. Also I was told by Irex that I shortly should be able to purchase devices through this distributor instead of Irex themselves. I was wondering if this is only in Spain or if others also have been given distributor info for their respective countries. If so maybe this is a good topic for a new thread.

Sorry Tscherno...I went through too much to get that device...and I think that'll be the reply you'll get from the other lucky few as well.
I'd advise calling iRex and asking them in person. They do answer the phone and talk to people, even non-b2b partners...so maybe you can make your point there and get your email address registered for an invite.

It's worth a try I guess...
Or you could wait until we german invite-holders get our devices and then maybe somebody is so disappointed that they'll sell their device...
