Google and iriver just announced that iriver’s latest 6″ ebook reader will soon be available at Target here in the US. It’s going to be tied to Google eBooks, and it will be the first ereader that will let you buy ebooks from Google direct from the device. It will be available in stores and online from 17 July, with a retail of $139.
This ereader is one that I’ve been dying to see ever since it first appeared around the time of CES 2011. It has a high resolution (1024×768) screen from LG Display. The screen is based on E-ink tech, but LG clearly put some work into giving it the higher resolution.
I’m still looking for the complete specs, but this is one ebook reader that is definitely on my buy list.
