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.
Based on Freescale ARM chippery, the reader has Wi-Fi on board, plus a Kindle-style Qwerty keyboard. Its supports PDF and ePub files, either unencrypted or with Adobe's DRM.
iRiver claimed the Story HD has a three-week battery life.
The Story HD will be out in Q2, price TDB. ®
