iRiver Story

At a mere .36 inches thick, [[xref:http://www.pcworld.com/article/185975/iriver_unveils_13inch_thick_ebook.html|iRiver's Story e-reader|iRiver Story e-reader]] is one of the thinnest we've seen. But even more impressive at this size is the list of bundled features (which is typical of iRiver products). According to iRiver's news release, the Story will have a QWERTY keyboard, a 6-inch e-Ink display, a Microsoft Office file viewer, MP3 player (of course) with headphone jack, voice recorder, and personal organizer "with memo pad and scheduler." It will have 2GB of internal memory (most of the e-book readers we've seen top out at 1GB) as well as an SD card slot for adding up to 16GB of additional storage.

The Story will launch later this month, with a Wi-Fi-enabled version coming later this year.
