First Google E-Book Compatible Reader to Go On Sale

Google has announced that the iriver Story HD e-reader will be available for sale in Target stores in the USA from next week. 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 comes with a high-resolution e-ink screen and a QWERTY keyboard. It includes over-the-air access to hundreds of thousands of GoogleeBooks for sale and more than 3 million for free.

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. Users can also store their personal ebooks library in the cloud — picking up where they left off in any ebook you’re reading as they move from laptop to smartphone to e-reader to tablet.

The  iriver Story HD will be sold with a recommended retail price of US$139.99
