The iRiver Story HD is reminiscent of the pre-Nexus days of Android, almost like a Motorola Droid-esque dip into offering good and official hardware for Google software.We're not sure if Google has deeper plans to stick it to the likes of Amazon and Barnes and Noble but Google is telling everyone to stay tuned for more Google eBooks-integrated devices
