iriver Story HD: The Device Google Books Will Use

Yesterday Google decided to jump in with eBook hardware.

Here’s a video demonstrating that device. Stick with it. English does come up on the screen. There is no sound.

This begs the questions of whether a Kindle 4 will also have a high resolution screen or if Sony has that planned for its new Reader(s). These days, an eBook reader really requires a touchscreen, not retro hard buttons.

After a break, two videos: an unboxing of the stock iriver Story HD and one Engadget did comparing it to the Kindle 3.

Listen carefully in this next video. Google is mentioned — just not by name!
