What is it?

An ebook portable reader is a digital book reader where you can access electronic book that you store in this gadget conveniently. Ebook portable reader takes the place of a physical book. There are two big companies, Sony and Kindle who launched brand new ebook portable reader. Both Sony’s and Amazon’s version of the ebook portable reader is the size of a trade paperback, so it mimics the feel of a book more than a PDA did in years past. With ebook portable reader, you don’t need a PC to download ebooks anymore. You can buy and download and store as many as 200 books in addition to magazines on this ebook portable reader wireless device. You can also download blogs and even newspapers.

The most advance e-reader is here - iRex Digital Reader 1000 S

The display is large (10.2" 1024x1280, I believe the largest currently on the market) and crystal clear and the stylus used for pointing, writing and making comments on existing text, makes it easy to interact.

I've been reading digital newspapers using the PressReader software and PressDisplay website and even used it to read digital versions of Scientific American, the New Yorker and Wired Magazine. Because of the large display I can read these in the same layout as the original magazine, although the text tends to be a bit smaller than the original print.
I use Adobe Acrobat to produce the necessary PDF files if they are not provided by the magazine/journal.

The iRex Digital Reader 1000S displays scientific papers in PDF format without any problems.

On the downside the reader have stalled on me a couple of times when I accidentally pressed a couple of buttons at the same time, but the "downtime" seems much less than some earlier comments on other websites have indicated. Perhaps the new software release 1.6 have addressed some of these problems.

Also the device was a bit slow when loading graphics intensive content such as Scientic American.

Yes the price is hefty, but if you want the really large display and help the environment then this is a great product.
