Irex DR800SG – A potent Pretender to the eReader Throne

Being a pioneer from the day one of the e-Book reader industry, Irex, a Philips subsidiary company, has now introduced a new device for the gentle reader abroad. The DR800SG is armed to capture the throne with unlimited 3G wireless access powered by Verizon, and HSDPA connectivity provided by Qualcomm Gobi radio, to unopposedly buy books wirelessly from the Barnes & Noble’s e-bookstore in addition to 1.140 newspapers in their original layout from Newspapers Direct. Till the 2GB built-in storage is reached, which is enough to comfortably store a private library’s content, an side-note feature is on hand. Besides aforementioned media, the new Irex also supports a few common formats such as ePub and PDF, displayed on an 8.1-inch touchscreen with advanced visibility and contrast ratio.
