Chinese newspaper Yantai Daily on iLiad

It seems that the first newspaper service via IDS started in real life.

If I understand the press release correctly, all titles are available now.

I think the color iLiad is just an ad photo.
The content is actually 16 level grey.
I had emailed them to ask more details.

BTW, the photo of comic is very interesting:
The man said "Is this the e-paper?"

Great epaper comics!

By the way my offer from long time ago is still valid. I would be happy to offer a couple of beers for a sample news paper, that looks like a printed version (paypal for example - few beers up here is 20.- EUR). Would be nice to have one for the forum. I don't care which language it is. If it is a Chinese one, it just shows that China is leading in this area!
