As someone who reads mostly on a computer screen, I can’t wait to see gadgets appearing that make the screen-reading experience a lot better than it currently is with PC screens.

I’ve written before about the iLiad, an e-book device that looks to be the most compelling yet in terms of features and ease of use.

The developer, iRex Technologies in The Netherlands, a spin-off from Philips Electronics, will soon be offering the iLiad to business customers, starting in Europe this month, with a consumer version in the works for sale in September.

Nice comparison between the iLiad and other e-book readers (eg, the Sony Reader):

What I find most compelling about the iLiad is how iRex have positioned it as an open source-type product, able to support as many different content formats as possible. As content producers develop content, a device like this should therefore prove quite appealing.

iRex will have to pay attention to getting the price right, though, if their goal is uptake on any large scale – currently priced at more than $800, according to Engadget.
