Yet Another E-Reader–With a Stylus This Time

IRex Technologies threw its hat into the increasingly crowded U.S. e-reader market Wednesday with the launch of its new device, the DR800SG.

The DR800SG will cost $400 and features an 8.1-inch screen and 3G wireless connectivity with carrier Verizon (VZ). In a retro move reminiscent of the Palm (PALM) Pilot, the e-reader comes with a stylus pen to navigate the on-screen menus. The company said it will roll out a touch-screen version in the second quarter of 2010.

IRex said it will partner with electronics retailer Best Buy (BBY) to offer the device in U.S. stores in late October 2009.
