And the day came for Google eBook readers: The U.S. was officially Story HD, an interesting e-reader or digital book reader, manufactured by the company along with iRiver and developed in Mountain View. Weapon will be subtle, mellow, light and cheap to go and try to give a shock to a market that is booming in the U.S. (by us, a little ‘less) putting the spanner in the field of the dominators. We are obviously talking about Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Above a little ‘photo after the jump, the sheet of Story HD.
Story HD is the new ebook reader ereader or iRiver packaged by the company – which in recent years has become known for media players, MIDs and PMPs – together in Mountain View. It will be a tool specifically designed to access the catalog of eBooks Google, Google Books.
The screen is one of its strengths, with a 6-inch diagonal 768 × 1024 pixels resolution, the device can use Wi-Fi, a battery Methuselah by 6 weeks of independence, full QWERTY keyboard and quick buttons, SD slot for expandable memory and USB interface.
With its price of $ 139.99 (from next July 17 in Target stores), Story HD will be a worthy rival of the Amazon Kindle and ebook reader called Nook Barnes & Noble, the dominators of the market at the stars and stripes.
