Seems the competition for a piece of Amazon’s coveted Kindle market has already started to boil up out of the woodwork. iRiver’s Story is one of the first off the block.
Formerly a major player in the Flash-based MP3 market, iRiver’s been having a lot of troubles in its home market of Korea. Thus, they’re looking to join in on the e-reader market and snag a little market share away from Amazon.
The iRiver Story has a six-inch LCD display, two gig of internal memory and comes in white only. It’ll also play back MP3s, which is handy for those books on tape. It’s not a bad little design, from the look of things, even if it really DOES look a lot like the Kindle. So hopefully, it’ll manage to pull off a comeback.
