iRiver Cover Story review


iRiver seems to be taking the ebook reader category seriously. We recently looked at their Story with Wi-Fi and now they have launched the Cover Story, their take on the touchscreen approach to ebook reading. There are two versions of the Cover Story:...

Compact, well built, SD card slot

Lacks contrast, screen prone to reflection, user interface uses some very small text, accompanying software is poor, lacks basic instructions regarding DRM use
