iRiver upgrades Story with hi-res display

HD, sort of

CES 2011 iRiver has announced what it claims will be the e-book reader with the highest resolution display.

The Story HD - the successor to iRiver's rather good Story reader - has a 6in, LG-made 768 x 1024. Not only more pixels, the display flips from one page to next more quickly than its rivals do, iRiver claimed.

iRiver claimed the Story HD has a three-week battery life.
