Google announced today that the iriver Story HD Wifi, the first eReader to have the Google eBookstore integrated, is now available in Australia.
irver has already signed up 3 Australian retailers to carry the Story HD. JB HiFi, the Good Guys and Harvey Norman all should have it in stock today, and more retailers are expected to carry the device soon. unfortunately, there are no plans for Google’s eBookstore partners, Dymocks and Booktopia, to carry this eReader.
The story HD has the highest resolution E0ink screen on the market, along with 2GB Flash storage, an SD card slot, and a keyboard. You can use the eReader to buy eBooks directly from Google, but it also supports any Epub or PDF which uses Adobe DE DRM. Readers can also sync their Google eBookstore purchases between the Story HD and Google’s reading apps for Android and iOS.
The Australian retail price is $138 AUD.
