The Story HD is not a Kindle. It's a digital piece of paper with an awesome resolution, non-DRM file format support, and expandable storage. Everything else about it is basic, but that's OK because it shouldn't try to compete with the content...

The iriver Story HD's physical presence is a bit startling for 2011. It's not that the Story HD's design is totally outdated, but it certainly fails to move the hardware story of ereaders forward in any significant way. The front of the device boasts a...

At first glance, the $139 iRiver Story HD seems like a solid eReader contender. The HD display differentiates this device from the Kindle and Nook, as does the wide document support. However, these features don't balance out the uncomfortable design...

Were it launched rather than just announced back in January, the Story HD may well have been a contender. As it stands, however, the reader is a victim of its own timing, having been eclipsed by both the Nook and Kobo -- and we still haven't seen what...

The iriver Story HD, a new e-reader making its way onto the market, is billed as the first Google eBooks-oriented reader. The construction and interface is very similar to the latest Kindle, and the WiFi version (actually, the only version) starts...

Экран, выполненный по все той же технологии Vizplex, на самом деле имеет преимущество по сравнению с другими аналогичными устройствами: увеличенное разрешение, составляющее не 800 х 600, а 1024 х 768 пикселей. Благодаря этому, на первый взгляд,...

Der E-Book-Reader iRiver Story HD will vor allem die Entwicklung der Bildqualität vorantreiben und setzt dafür auf eine deutlich höhere Auflösung als der Amazon Kindle oder der Oyo-Reader. Nur kleine Mängel in der Software des Geräts sorgen hin und...
