iRex Launches New Digital Readers for Business Professionals

Netherlands-based iRex Technologies ( has launched the iRex 1000 series Digital Reader. With its 10.2" Electronic Paper display, it is aimed at business professionals, while the previously introduced iRex iLiad with an 8.1" display was aimed at consumers. The 1000 series will offer three products within the range—from the DR1000 base version equipped with a USB connector ($649) through the DR1000 S equipped with a stylus for writing ($749) to the DR1000 SW with stylus, plus WIFI and Bluetooth connectivity ($849; not yet available).

The iRex 1000 series is designed to offer superior functionality and a unique 10.2" screen size to allow easy reading and referencing of documents from A4 PowerPoint presentations to sophisticated PDF files and from HTML to TXT and JPEG. Increased memory ensures that users can be confident that the device will hold any and all documents they require.

Weighing less than 570 grams and only 1.2cm deep, the 1000 series is an open system that synchronizes easily with the PC and is able to read all common formats. The large display has 16 gray tones, and storage capacity is delivered via a changeable 1GB SD card. The universal mini-USB connector can be used for transferring files as well as uploading, and content can be easily transferred from the internet. The chargeable built in Lithium-ion battery has sufficient power to last for several days.

iRex Technologies BV has been instrumental in pushing the frontiers of digital reading since 2001 when its team developed the electronic paper display for the Sony Librié, the first commercially available e-reader launched in 2004. iRex Technologies was formed in 2005 as a spinoff company from Royal Philips Electronics.
