iRiver Cover Story

 

Step forward, then, the touch-sensitive Cover Story, its successor, which arrives at a time when e-readers are getting ever more competitive and classy.

It’s a cool and clever e-reader, but if you’re looking to convert to digital books, it's a bit pricey and lacking in killer extras for our liking.

iRiver Cover Story review

 

iRiver's second e-reader has Sony's Pocket Edition in its sights. But is it worth buying?

A neat e-reader, but a bit pricey and let down by lack of Wi-Fi in the cheap version
