Irex back from the grave!

FD.nl, a Dutch financial news website, are reporting that ereader maker Irex have secured new financing and will continue to operate. The new company will be called IRX Innovations. Hans Brons, head of Irex, has announced that IRX will abandon the consumer market with the plan to focus on the business market and licensing IRX designs to third parties.

This is great news for a bunch of people I know. They're all waiting on repairs to their Irex ereader. Some have been waiting for months.

About Nate Hoffelder (11577 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The bad news is that, apparently, they will only be supporting DR800 series. The Illiad and DR1000 users are out of luck.
