A Wi-Fi version of the iRiver Story eBook Reader will be going on sale at WHSmith, one of the UK’s largest bookstores. WHSmith already sells the non Wi-Fi enabled Story eReader. Prior to selling the Story, WHSmith only sold Sony eReaders.
The Story renders various eBook formats including ePub, PDF and TXT files. It has a 6″ Eink screen and is Wi-Fi enabled. It automatically connects with the WHSmith eBookstore online.
The device is priced at 250 pounds, which is a lot more than a $189 (125 pounds) Kindle. It is also more costly than the $150 (99 pounds) Nook Wi-Fi from Barnes & Noble and the 209 pounds Sony Touch Digital eBook Reader also on sale at WHSmith.
