Read open content and ebooks in any format, anywhere with the Iriver Cover Story WiFi
London, England 22th Nov. 2010: Iriver Ltd. Is proud to announce the launch of its Cover Story WiFi eBook reader.
The Cover Story WiFi is now available to pre-order exclusively at Waterstones and at www.iriver.co.uk. This fabulous device puts an entire world of open content at your fingertips. Using a sleek touchscreen, the EB05W does not limit the user to any one content provider. It is elegantly constructed with a slimline body to rival even the shortest novella in portability - perfect for voracious readers with an appetite for literature.
Whether you’re relaxing on a well-deserved holiday, taking any flight or simply riding the bus to work on your daily commute, the iriver Wi-Fi Cover Story provides the perfect portal to open content.
Open Content. Any format. No limits.
Unlike many other eBook readers, the Wi-Fi Cover Story does not restrict you to a single point of purchase or ebook format. As well as the embedded link to the Waterstones ebook store – accessible on the move wherever a WiFi connection is available – content can be accessed via your PC from any number of websites that promote open content.
Open Content – be it novels, comic books, recipe books, textbooks or self-published works - can be downloaded from anywhere, in a wide variety of formats, to your computer and transferred quickly to the eBook reader via USB or SD card. Its ability to read a wide range of file formats – including EPUB, PDF, TXT, DJVU and even Microsoft Word and Powerpoint files - means that you’re never locked in to one format and don’t have to waste money repurchasing your digital content should you wish to change platform.
Thanks to the latest e-ink screen technology, the reading experience is akin to reading the printed page. The user does not have to squint in bright sunlight or strain their eyes staring at a laptop-style screen whilst reading!
Read an entire novel comfortably in one sitting - without the long-term health issues often associated with illuminated LCD screens. Pages can be turned by gently swiping the touchscreen left and right, and the reader can be used in any orientation, as its in-built gravity sensor always knows which way is up. The Wi-Fi Cover Story also includes a fully functional Oxford English Dictionary, enabling fast lookup of challenging words within ebooks.
Perfect for work and play
Comic book and graphic novel fans will be pleased to learn that the device can quickly render all common image and comic book file types. If the need arises to check a document whilst you are out of the office, the iriver Wi-Fi Cover Story strikes the perfect balance between work and play with the ability to display PDF and Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint formats.
As well as the impressive reading capabilities, the iriver Wi-Fi Cover Story offers music playback, voice recording and the ability to take notes and maintain your diary using its keyboard. Memory is expandable via SDHC card up to 32GB.
The iriver Wi-Fi Cover Story (EB05W) is available to pre-order now from Waterstones.com, priced at £149.
