iriver Story HD hits Russia next month

iriver have announced that their latest 6" ebook reader will soon be available in Russia.

It looks like the Story HD for the Russian market has the same specs as before. In fact, it doesn't appear that iriver localized this for the Russian market at all.

The Story HD comes with the same Collins dictionary as well as 200 free titles in English.  And yes, that's for the Russian market. I hope they at least switched over the keyboard, but given that the dictionary is the same I doubt it.

There's no sign of which ebookstore the Story HD will access from on-board the device. There's also no mention of Wifi, so this might not be the same model as in the US. Retail is set at 5,600 rubles (~$196 USD). It's due out next month.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
