Google eBooks Come to iRiver e-reader


Starting this coming Sunday, July 17, the iriver Story HD e-reader will be available for sale in Target stores and on Target.com. The iriver Story HD is the first e-reader integrated with the open Google eBooks platform, through which you can buy and read Google eBooks over Wi-Fi.

The iriver Story HD, which retails for $139.99, is slim with a six-inch XGA (768 by 1024) E Ink display and a QWERTY keyboard. At 7.3 -ounces, it's also lighter than competitive devices. iRiver claims a battery life that will let you flip up to 14,000 pages or up to six weeks of standby on a single charge. It includes over-the-air access to hundreds of thousands of Google eBooks for sale and more than 3 million for free. With the Story HD you can now browse, buy and read Google eBooks with your e-reader through Wi-Fi, rather than downloading and transferring them from computer to e-reader with a cord.

Google built the Google eBooks platform to be open to all publishers, retailers and manufacturers. Manufacturers like iriver can use Google Books APIs and services to connect their devices to the full Google eBooks catalog for out-of-the-box access to a complete ebookstore. You can also store your personal ebooks library in the cloud?picking up where you left off in any ebook you?re reading as you move from laptop to smartphone to e-reader to tablet.

In December, Google eBooks launched with the ability to read Google eBooks on any device with a modern browser, on Android and iOS devices using the Google Books mobile apps, through our Chrome Web Store app and on compatible ereaders. Since then, the company has added new retailers and made Google eBooks available in Android Market.

iriver is the first manufacturer to launch an e-reader integrated with Google eBooks.
