iRiver arrive on the new eBook scene with a polished piece of handheld perfection! The eBook market is one we fully expect to explode in 2010 – there are a variety of products now out there and the high street is catching on. What’s key about the future of the eBook is the convergence with other portable devices – so in future, you’ll have a device to listen to music, read books and even work on documents. The Story uses a revolutionary E-Ink display, which takes no power to display a page – it only consumes energy when you change page. Hence, you can’t measure battery life in hours, you use page turns (over 7000 page turns on one charge) In terms of compatibility, it’s got all the bases covered. EPUB, PDF & TXT cover the main formats for commercial ebooks, while the Story also displays office files like DOC, PPT & XLS. For comics & graphic novels, JPEG, BMP and GIF image types are supported (8 shade greyscale. In stark contrast to most eBooks on the market, the Story has a full Qwerty Keyboard, allowing you to modify documents and take notes, use the onboard Diary and scheduler. It’s also audio enabled – with a headphone output and built in speaker, you’ll use it for audiobooks, or to play music – a key feature being it’s ability to maintain playback while you read a book. You’ll also use the integrated voice recorder to take notes or record interviews & lectures. You’ll have plenty of storage too. It has a class-leading 2GB of onboard flash memory, enough for around 1500 eBooks – and that’s without using the onboard SD card slot to add as much memory as you require. Just think about the weight of 1500 books, let alone the paper saved by carrying them all in one little electronic device.

    Great product. Multi-language capability and expandable memory upto 32Gig caught my attention to this product and been enjoying it ever since. Would’ve been nice if there was button somewhere along the middle on the side to ease the page turning.

    Irever Story HD 2GB E-book Reader, December 30, 2011

    The one I’ve got was Irever Story HD 2GB e-reader with WiFi support.
    It has a standard (pretty straight-forward) user interface which I personally find to be rather friendly and convenient.
    WiFi works great within a couple of wireless networks I had a chance to try it with.
    Battery seem to keep its charge for a very long time.
    Although, it does have 2GB built in storage capacity, the OS reserves about 500MB for its system files so you will probably have around 1.5GB at your disposal.
    The screen measures 6″ on diagonal and is bright and contrast.
    While the device itself seems to be built pretty tough and proved (in my case) to be relatively scratch resistant, getting a protective case might still be a good idea.
    It has an ability to download and display PDF files which I think was one of the major improvements comparing to the previous generation of Iriver Story (and definitely very important to me).
    Overall, it’s a very nice e-reader for the money.

    This review is from: iRiver Story 2GB e-book reader (Electronics)

    This is the original iRiver Story that was never available in the US. It doesn’t have WiFi and doesn’t have a touch screen. All movement is accomplished using arrow keys. There are small areas near the bottom of the device that you press to turn the page in either direction. You can turn pages on either the left or right. It saves your place when you leave the book, and has a search function.

    It supports a number of ebook formats, .cbz comic book files, and mp3′s.

    Despite what it doesn’t have, I enjoyed using it for the time that I had it. It’s thin and light, the screen doesn’t glare, and it interfaced very well through USB for music files. I was able to let Callibri do all of the work for ebooks.
