Google reader coming out (Iriver Story)

Looks interesting: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2011/...-e-reader.html

140$, sold at Target.


Too many buttons for my taste ...

They might be necessary for heavy typing (I mean heavy for an ereader).
What is strange is that their website has a different image for the reader. And it's sold out.

iRiver has made the Story for several years. This would potentially be the third generation of the Story, with the previous being the Cover Story (gen 2), and the original Story.

iRiver is so proud of their new device that they don't even show it on their website?

Finally some sign of life on the story HD, it has been unusually quiet about it lately, even though it has been for sale for a few weeks now.

But i hope this increase in popularity leads to more development in the firmware, since the device seems to have a bunch of bugs.

It depends on which website you look at. www.iriver.com shows the Story and Cover Story (but not the new Story, but I guess that is because it isn't technically out yet. Isn't it to be released on the 17th?). www.iriverinc.com doesn't show any Story, but it appears to be about 2 years out of date, as everything is dated 2009.

I was talking about www.iriverinc.com because this was the link in the article from the OP:

You can learn more about the Story HD on the iriver website.
You can find one Story by clicking on e-store.

The 1024x768 screen is certainly tempting, but the reports of buggy and poorly featured software on the iriver forum aren't. It'll be interesting to know if the Google version has fixed the bugs and added some needed features.

Then the one who wrote the article about it shouldn't have said that people can find more information about it there.
