iLiad E-Reader is Now Shipping Orders

I’ve been waiting for this one for awhile. The iRex iLiad E-Reader is the first ebook to feature electronic ink. It has a wide variety of available features and document formats. The only downside is the price-point at 649 euros. Hopefully this will lower as production ramps up and Sony introduces its Sony Reader; a competitive product utilizing e-Ink due near the end of the quarter.

Is this the end of the traditional book as we know it? The outcome is not likely if you take previous forays into replacing pulp-fiction into account. Despite this, I do have to admit that this is a pretty nice piece of gear.
