Starting, Sunday, July 17, the iriver Story HD e-reader will be available for sale in Target stores nationwide and on Target.com.
"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," revealed Google.
"The iriver Story HD, which retails for $139.99, is slim and lightweight with a high-resolution e-ink screen and a QWERTY keyboard for easy searching. It includes over-the-air access to hundreds of thousands of Google eBooks for sale and more than 3 million for free. With the Story HD you can now browse, buy and read Google eBooks with your e-reader through Wi-Fi, rather than downloading and transferring them from computer to e-reader with a cord as you can already do with more than 80 compatible devices."
"In December, Google eBooks launched with the ability to read Google eBooks on any device with a modern browser, on Android and iOS devices using the Google Books mobile apps, through our Chrome Web Store app and on compatible ereaders. Since then, we've added new retailers--growing to include more than 250 independent bookstores--and made Google eBooks available in Android Market. We've also extended our affiliate network and updated our family of Google Books APIs," added Google.
You can learn more about the Story HD on the iriver website.
