previously reported Philips Electronics iRex subsidiary revealed specifications on its upcoming iLiad eBook reader.
The iLiad can now be purchased from iRex’s website for a fairly large chunk of change -- 649 Euros (approximately $826). This is nearly the price of an entry-level laptop that can do more than just display PDF, XHTML, TXT and MP3 files. Nevertheless the iLiad features USB, Compact Flash type II slot, SD/MMC slot, stereo audio output jack, 802.11g wireless and 10/100 Ethernet.
An 8.1” grayscale touch screen LCD capable of 1024x768 will allow users to take write down notes. Other specifications include a 400MHz
Marvell Xscale processor
, 64MB ram, 224MB internal flash memory available to the user and a rechargeable battery.
Current shipping iLiad eBooks are equipped with the initial firmware release. However, iRex has plans to release new software that adds new features in the July/August and August/September/October time frame. In July/August iRex is expected to add Hotspot support, eBook DRM and HTML page break support. August/September/October will bring dictionary support, annotations on PDF/TXT/HTML, file management, MP3 playing, search and bookmarking.
