Despite the advantages of electronic ink, eBooks have a long road ahead of them. Engadget reports that iRex, a Philips spinoff, has announced that it will soon start rolling out its iLiad eBook to B2B customers in Europe, which seems like a smoother launch strategy than what Sony has planned for the Sony Reader.

This kind of utility argument is much more difficult to make to consumers, and, as CNet notes, Sony still has shown no signs of getting its Connect act together.
