iRex e-reader 1000 -- large size e-reader

Early last week iRex sent out a press release announcing a new e-reader device (shown below).

The reader is over 10 inches high and very thin. It has a notepad with stylus capability and is aimed at business documents and business users. Usability among e-readers continues to improve. E-readers become more like tablet PCs every day. A better e-reader for textbooks gets closer every day.
