iriver Story HD Wiki
iriver Story HD becomes first Google eBooks-integrated e-reader, developed by Google and iriver. It is similar to Kindle, but the buttons are copper-colored. It's similar in size to the Kindle and packs a 6-inch 1024 x 768 display, along with an 800MHz Coretx A8 processor, 2GB of internal memory, an SD card slot for expansion, and WiFi connectivity.
This device marks a big milestone for Google. It's the first dedicated ereader on the market for Google eBooks although the service is currently available on 80 Android and iOS devices. The new ereader might have a bit of trouble selling when placed next to the less expensive Kindle on Target shelves, but it is technically a stronger, more versatile device, which will likely ring true with a certain demographic.
