iRex has a new consumer e-book reader out today, which incorporates some of the company's higher end specs and makes them available in something a little more palatable for end users. Although it doesn't have the Kindle's pervasive connection, it can still sync RSS feeds, as well as take notes with its touchscreen. Check out the specs:
  • 8.1-inch XGA display, 16 grayscale
  • 400MHZ XScale CPU, 64MB RAM
  • Wacom-based touch input
  • 256MB flash memory, USB, MMC, and CF slots
  • Reads PDF, HTML, TXT, Mobipocket, JPG, BMP, and PNG
  • 3.5mm audio out
  • Travel-hub add-on with... Ethernet! Oookay.
  • 8.5 x 6.1 x 0.63-inches, 15.3 ounces
It launches May 9th in Europe, and will sell for a very hefty sum of €499 ($770 US). But hey, it does come bundled with 50 public domain classics, so, um, that's something. Some more shots after the break.
