iRex devrait annoncer un nouveau modèle 8" et dans le même article, ils parlent des rumeurs sur un modèle similaire chez Sony, pour faire face au Kindle DX

Just got an image of a mock-up for a new e-Reader from iRex that's due out this holiday season. Not much info on this thing but it's larger than the Kindle 2 and just-announced Sony Readers.

Here's the little we know:

* 8.1-inch display
* 3G wireless connectivity (no carrier announced)
* Touch screen with stylus navigation
* Fall 2009 release

Until now iRex, one of the early e-reader pioneers (you remember the iLiad, right?), has mainly offered more business-oriented readers that are rather pricey and sold primarily to European customers. However, this model is a consumer model that will be sold in the U.S., as well as other countries (here in the States, I suspect it will cost less than $400 and possibly less than $350). Allegedly, the unit will have a tie-in with one of the large online e-book sellers, though iRex wouldn't say which one.

At this point, it's unclear what the optimal display size will be for e-readers but some people do want screens larger than 6 inches. However, a lot of people think the Kindle DX, which sports a 9.7-inch screen, is too large. So 8.1 inches may be the happy medium.

Sony, too, is also rumored to have a larger form factor wireless Reader in the works. We hope to hear about the Sony device in the next few weeks.
Sinon il y a aussi Plastic Logic qui va prochainement débarquer :

Les rumeurs parlent de 299$ comme prix d'introduction :
