Editor's Note: I'm posting this story without direct confirmation. I've waited 2 hours for my contacts with Interead to deny the story and they have not. I guess they're not there to answer the emails, which is good enough for me.
eReaders.nl is reporting that Interead, maker of the Cool-ER ereader, have gone into liquidation. They do not have direct confirmation, only an email received by one of Interead's customers:
Hello, I am sorry to say that the company went into liquidation.
Shoot. They had promised to lend me the Cool-ER Connect when it came out in September.
TBH, I'm not all that surprised. Aside from the colorful cases the Cool-ER was just an ordinary Netronix EB-600. It really had little to recommend it, and once the Kobo ereader came out the Cool-ER was, well, not doomed but definitely in dire straights.
