- iRex: Dutch electronic reader manufacturer iRex Technologies has secured a EUR 6 million investment. The round was led by Main Capital Partners and joined by existing shareholders ABN AMRO Capital as well as company management. It will be used for R&D and product development. Philips spin-off iRex has a number of content suppliers for its iLiad device, including China’s Yantai Daily newspaper group. Last week, French business paper Les Echos started publishing to the iLiad and iRex says national Dutch papers and several “international” titles are due to trial the device.
