iRiver Story HD

iRiver Story HD, Hot eBook Reader with High-def e-Ink Screen

iRiver's 6" Story HD e-reader is a new version of the Story, with a number of new advancements.

The Story HD is called the world's first 6" XGA e-reader, with a full 1024x768 resolution display, representing 63.8% more pixels and faster page turns than rivals. There's also a Freescale processor inside, built-in Wi-Fi, a QWERTY keypad, a 3-week battery life and support for ePUB/PDF file formats (with DRM). So far iRiver has not talkaed about pricing, but the Story HD will ship in Q2 2011 and be "competitively priced." Hard to say what that means with the rapidly changing tablet market, but lets hope it'll probably be somewhat cheaper than the Kindle and NOOK.
