Philips spin-off to launch large e-book reader

Sometime during the next two weeks Philips spin-off Irex Technologies should come out with its A5-sized (1024×768 pixels) Iliad e-book reader. That makes three E Ink based readers announced for this year. These devices have screens that look like paper, are paperback sized and run thousands of pages off a single charge. Is this going to be the year of the e-book?

(Another rejected Slashdot submission. Something that ticks me off; not because my stories are great–I doubt they are–, but because of the tripe they do publish. Even with Zonk in my kill filter, pickings have been very slim lately. I guess it’s a story buyer’s market.)
