iRiver Story eReader hands-on review

Best Tablet Review
21 August 2010
  • 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 review

8 March 2010
  • Summary: We like the iRiver Story. It's smarter looking than the Kindle, or Cooler Reader and the built in audio playback and speaker is nice. We're not quite sure that a full qwerty keyboard was required, and note-taking is a non-starter, but the presence of multiple control buttons on the top row is great, as are the large page-turn buttons on the left and right side of the system.

iRiver Story with Wi-Fi

Pocket Lint
5 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The experience of the Story is a little fiddly when it comes to that actual interface offered by the WHSmith ebook store, but we did find the books we were looking for. If you are serious about buying an ebook reader (with WHSmith pushing the Story to access its store, Waterstones plugging the Sony Readers and Amazon with its Kindle) the question you have to ask is whether the store the device is connected to offers the books you want.
  • Pros: WHSmith connection works well enough, in-built Adobe authorisation, SD card slot
  • Cons: WHSmith store is a little fiddly

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.

iRiver Story review

19 December 2009
  • Excerpt: IRiver is more well-known for its range of MP3 players, but the company has jumped on the ebook reader bandwagon with the aptly-named Story, a device that bears more than a passing resemblance to Amazon's Kindle reader. The Story is a more traditional reader, as it doesn't include a wireless service for downloading books and can only have new titles copied to it from a PC.
