Cool Personal iLiad videos

Hi,

Those of you who are not having an iLiad yet, might be interested in seeing one in action. You can now do so by watching a little video I made.

Please use one of the mirror links to download the video (34.6 MByte, 09min35s). You can also click onto the image to view a flash version on youtube.com.



Fast mirror, provided by BKeeper (THANKS!): Mirror 1
Fast mirror, provided by iRexTechnologies: Mirror 2

Please forgive the not really perfect quality. Video codec is Divx. Resolution is 360x288 (PAL/2). The video is edited and composed, colors are adjusted.

UPDATE:

oliverbogler made a nive video review on his own. You can go to his blog and watch the quicktime video by clicking onto the following image:



UPDATE:

Another video from Oliver, showing the improvements in 2.6: Veoh Video Site

UPDATE:

A video from Switzerland with commentary in Schwitzerditsch ;-) : iLiad Video on sevenload.de

UPDATE:

And a version 2.7.1 video from wagnerian: http://wagnerian.tistory.com/8

Cool! I really would like to see it but I don't get more than 3Kb/s and that will take...*thinking*...a very long time.

Thanks anyway.

I changed the download link. It should now be much much faster.

EDIT: Sorry, did not work.
EDIT EDIT: How can I delete a post?
EDIT EDIT EDIT: The original connection should now work with 512 kb/s. Apparently the server became a little bit confused and caused a traffic jam.

Hey, for those of you complaining about speed. I’ve just set up a mirror of the video review. Enjoy…

PS: let’s just hope the server survives...

Great job R2D2!!! I got most of it (about 7'30" before it pooped out) and it's very well done. I have a feel now for the responsiveness (not very), but also a better impression of how nice it will be for reading pdf files on a full page with e-ink. Thanks!

Actually, I can live with the current page loading speed. It's not that bad.
A bigger problem for me is the folder navigation. And yes, I would also like to have a big DIN A4 brother of the current iLiad.

This is definitely the ultimate "all-you-want-to-know" video of the Iliad.
Must have taken you some work, R2d2.
Good job!!
