iriver Story Reviewed: Nice, But No Kindle...or Reader

PC Pro reviewed the iRiver Story. And to no one's surprise, it's not a bad eBook/PDF reader, but it's too expensive compared to more established competitors.

While PC Pro praises the use of ePub format (it's not tied so closely to one store like the Kindle), they put its build and display quality below the Kindle. They say it's a lot like the Sony Reader PRS-505...but far more expensive for no justifiable reason. (The Story costs the equivalent of $380, while that Reader is but $300.) Sounds like a price drop will straighten out most of these qualms. [PC Pro via Engadget]
