Also, the iRiver reviews tended to point out that the text did not look much improved over the lower-res screens.
I saw an iRiver Story in person once, I thought the text looked GREAT! I loved the higher resolution. However, the screen was NOT pearl, and the contrast not good. Plus it wasn't a touch device, so I had no urge to buy. I've been waiting for a pearl hi-res screen ever since though.
