Verizon Wireless To Support E-book Reader
NEW YORK (AP) ¿ Verizon will be providing wireless book downloads for an electronic reading device, joining AT&T and Sprint in supporting electronic books.
IREX Technologies, a Dutch company, said Wednesday that it would start selling an e-book reader this fall for $400. It will have a screen with an 8.1-inch diagonal, in between the size of the two models of Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle.
The Kindle was the first e-book reader on the U.S. market with a cellular Internet connection, supplied by Sprint Nextel Corp. AT&T's network will support upcoming readers from Sony Corp. and Plastic Logic Ltd.
IREX says its reader will use Barnes & Noble Inc.'s e-book store, and the device itself will be sold in some Best Buy Inc. stores.
