Cool new features coming for the IREX DR800SG ebook reader
      02/26/10 10:48 AM

We just reviewed the IREX DR800SG Digital Reader and liked what we saw. But there was room for improvement, especially in the inking department and PDF zoom (right now these features don't exist but we sure want 'em).

IREX has contacted us and as it turns out, they're adding those features and a lot of really juicy others this April. Color me very impressed. And I do hope they can get all these out by April-- they're not a trivial set of new features. These will certainly make the IREX a very competitive reader that could give the Sony Reader Daily Edition a run for the money.




Here are the new features and improvements, straight from IREX management:


? Note taking application - NO SUPPORT TO VIEW THESE NOTES ON A PC
? B&N EPUB support
? Automatic indexing of title, author and thumbnail when a file is added to the device
? Ability to import Settings and Accounts (MYIREX, Adobe) from MYIREX sign-up webpage on PC
? Improved 3G connection setup time by using QC network driver
? "Go to page" function in the document viewer
? Book Information View that shows more metadata for PDF and EPUB
? Advanced Settings that will allow to enable 'selection zoom' and 'scribble' features only on PDF documents
? IREX will be continually adding content providers to our eBook Mall. We will be offering our own ?IREX Newsstand? that will contain 20+ newspapers/magazines from Libre Digital. Should be ready by April if not before.


The IREX is available now at Best Buy in the US.
