IRex challenges Sony and Kindle in growing U.S. e-reader market

PressDisplay live on IREX DR800SGAnd NewspaperDirect is right there with them!

Yesterday, IREX Technologies unveiled their new wireless digital reader – DR800SG in New York City and there was quite  a buzz about it!

The NYT apparently had an exclusive on the story for a few hours (at least that’s what I read on twitter by another journalist). 

There were a ton of ariticles about it online, and some great quotes.  Here’s one I particularly enjoyed from “US Chick” on Unthinkable:

“It has also partnered with NewspaperDirect, which serves up “1140 newspapers from 87 countries in 41 languages in their original layout.” I’m thinking that alone is worth buying it for. Just think, you are on vacation in some God forsaken country, but still can instantly get the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Investor’s Business Daily as soon as they come out alerting you to fiascos in the office back home. Priceless. And something that can’t be done on a Kindle!”

Cool eh?  Sounds like she’s almost as big a fan of PressDisplay as I am!
