iriver Story HD: The first Google eBooks e-reader

Remember Google's eBookstore that first launched in the December of 2010? It was a service that tried to make an ebook ecosystem that is omnipresent and seamlessly integrated into the cloud. Now, in the middle of the year after has come the very first e-book reader that integrates itself with Google's service: The iriver Story HD.
Google's eBooks service is not limited to any one kind of device. Books purchased from Google can be read on almost all kinds of phones, tablets, apps, and even on your computer. You can even read them on your NOOK. Amazon's Kindle is not supported, though.

The Story HD is priced at $139.99 and can access the Google eBookstore directly, out-of-the-box over Wi-Fi. As all e-readers, the Story HD also has an e-ink display.
