iriver Story HD VS Kindle
Our trailer was just visited by an iriver rep bearing his company's Kindle killer in waiting, the Story HD. This 6-inch e-reader touts a bodacious 1024 x 768 resolution, which contributes to an even better contrast ratio than on Amazon's E Ink slate, while software optimizations between now and release are expected to make the Story HD the fastest-refreshing device of its kind.
iriver Story HD VS Kindle: Screen Size
It looks to me the image on the Story HD is a bit larger than the one on the Kindle, which has a slightly wider margin around the image than on the iriver device.
First of all the iriver Story HD screen is simply just great. The high resolution really makes a difference. The text is very crisp and clear. IMHO the contrast is comparable or slightly better than on the e-ink pearl readers I have seen but the increased resolution really makes all the difference.
iriver Story HD VS Kindle: Features
Like Amazon's Kindle, the Story HD features a QWERTY keyboard but offers an up/down button for page-turning, rather than the more common left/right button. It looks to be the same slim size as the Kindle Wi-Fi, but with a two-tone design that extends to the back cover. iriver claims the Story HD will last 3-weeks without a charge but did not specify how it arrived at this number. My guess is the Wi-Fi must be turned off with the lowest possible screen setting to achieve this duration.
iriver Story HD VS Kindle: e-Books platform
iriver's Story HD is designed for Google's e-Books platform, with direct access to over three million free (in public domain) and for-purchase Google e-Books (including over 250 independent bookstores) via Wi-Fi. Because Google's special sauce is that is content is in the cloud, users can access most e-books online without having to download a copy locally (except copyright-protected works). Plus, they will have the added benefit of being able to continue reading the same cloud-based e-book from desktop to phone to e-reader, without having to move the same file between multiple devices. Of course, the Story HD is not absolutely tied to the Google cloud: it also supports Adobe EPUB and PDFs with DRM, which means users can also enjoy public library e-Books as well as paid content, offline.
