  • 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.

iRiver – Story

15 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Its designers have done a good job with the Story, and despite some minor niggles it remains a flexible, comfortable reader that's easy to operate and offers a range of genuinely useful advantages. However, considering many people speculate that the rise of eBooks is being hampered somewhat by the price of these devices, iRiver hasn't really done enough in this area to offer an unequivocal recommendation.

  • Cons: Poor battery life, No Wi-Fi support, No dictionary, High price

iRiver Story with Wi-Fi review

Pocket Lint
5 August 2010
  • 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
  • Cons: WHSmith store is a little fiddly

  • Excerpt: On the eve of the iPad launch, we take a look using an iRiver Story eBook reader with Mac OS OX. Can't wait to read digital books, or just aware of the advantages of electronic ink? Whatever way suits you, the iRiver Story is a great piece of kit.

iRiver Story review

22 January 2010
  • 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.
