Excerpt: Obviously modeled after the Kindle, the iRiver Story has a 600×800 resolution 6-inch E-Ink screen with 8 shades of gray levels (as opposed the Kindle’s 16) and a full QWERTY keyboard below it. It has 2GB of memory and a battery rated for 9,000 page turns. The Story also features a headphone socket, speaker, voice recorder, MP3 player, diary and memo program.
Excerpt: We looked at the iRiver Story back in December 2009 and we liked it. Good construction, wide file support and a QWERTY keyboard round out a spec sheet that challenges most of its rivals. But does adding Wi-Fi bring anything to the mixture?
Pros: WHSmith connection works well enough, in-built Adobe authorisation, SD card slot
Summary: With hordes of e-readers filling up the showroom floor at CES 2010, it seems the digital book is ready to execute its plan for world domination. The favourite to break the mainstream is Amazon’s Kindle – whose wireless DX version is now shipping to the UK – but iRiver has just staked its claim with the aptly named Story.
Excerpt: Ebook readers are for travellers, right? Wrong. Take frequent flyers: can anything that has to be switched off during take-off and landing really be considered "great for travellers"? Not really, but if you don't confuse the genre with that bastion of travel-friendly media, the book, ebook readers are becoming genuinely interesting. And we'd include the iRiver Story in that camp.
Pros: Wide file compatibility, easy to use, expandable to 32GB for excellent music playback
Cons: Expensive, can be slow to load some files, zoom function is flawed
