iRex are pushing a radically different model for their software platform with their recent open sourcing of their code, and it will be interesting to see:-
- how many, and which, applications get developed outside of iRex
- how iRex will handle rolling some of them back into the core platform they release or manage
- how they affect the iRex Illiad reading experience, if you have many different applications on it with different user interaction models, layouts etc.
- will it make anyone else consider taking this route? I can't see Sony doing it somehow.
