Google Breaks into the eBook Reader Market

If you attended our "Gadgets and Gear" conference in June, you'll remember that we touched on some of the new developments in ebook readers, including Google's Books app, which allows you to read (and buy) Google's own ebooks on your phone, tablet, or computer. Now, Google has a dedicated device for this purpose, the iriver Story HD. Like the Kindle, it has an e-ink screen and a small keyboard. Whether it will turn out to be a strong competitor for the Kindle remains to be seen. The Week has a good run-down of opinions at http://theweek.com/article/index/217146/can-the-google-e-reader-compete-with-the-kindle
