The Story uses a revolutionary E-Ink display, which takes no power to display a page - it only consumes energy when you change page. Hence, you can't measure battery life in hours, you use page turns (over 7000 page turns on one charge) In terms of compatibility, it's got all the bases covered. EPUB, PDF & TXT cover the main formats for commercial ebooks, while the Story also displays office files like DOC, PPT & XLS. For comics & graphic novels, JPEG, BMP and GIF image types are supported (8 shade greyscale)

In stark contrast to most eBooks on the market, the Story has a full Qwerty Keyboard, allowing you to modify documents and take notes, use the onboard Diary and scheduler.

It's also audio enabled - with a headphone output and built in speaker, you'll use it for audiobooks, or to play music - a key feature being it's ability to maintain playback while you read a book. You'll also use the integrated voice recorder to take notes or record interviews & lectures.

You'll have plenty of storage too. It has a class-leading 2GB of onboard flash memory, enough for around 1500 eBooks - and that's without using the onboard SD card slot to add as much memory as you require. Just think about the weight of 1500 books, let alone the paper saved by carrying them all in one little electronic device.

I took a punt on this based on very positive PR as the kindle "killer".
The fact that this reader does the basics really well , is a very thin and light - its about as half as thin as the sony . More to the point it has 2gb internal memory but also a removable SD . Then you come to the important stuff . It allows mircosoft software progammes to be up loaded and utisised via the mini keyboard. Voice recording for all those times when you need to get it all down - lectures , legal stuff etc.. Its future proofed as it will handle comic and newspaer formats. The personal organiser is on board as well . Dont follow the crowd buy this area.

 Great Product

Iriver are constantly updating the firmware and adding new features to this product, decreasing loading times and adding new functionality like dithering to increase clarity of displayed images and change displayed fonts using reflow even if you're reading from scanned pdf files.

It also lacks the copy protection limitations on the other ereader products that can be troublesome at times by erroneously preventing you from reading items that you have actually legally purchased or have created yourself.

The user support and features of Iriver products have always been quite excellent for probably being one of the more underappreciated brands.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for an ereader.

Wifi is not "option." Currently, wifi enabled version is not available. But wifi version is expected to be coming in early Q2 2010.

The ebook reader can read pdf, MS office files(ppt,doc,xls),and play mp3,wma, ogg audio files.

So impressed by their unbeatable customer support like constant firmware updating!

I have had this reader for a few weeks and am extremely pleased with it, it works flawlessly with my iMac. It is very easy to hold and use, the page turn buttons are in just the right place and it is a simple task to bookmark your page and if needed enlarge the text.
All in all a great ereader.
