'Pentax Story' app updated - Pentax history from 1919

The Ricoh 'Pentax Story' tablet presentation has been updated to include presentation of a new chapter about the history of Pentax cameras from 1919 onwards, and a few other topics.



The updated app is only available for iPad presently, but in the past they have also made available an Android version too:

Ricoh web page about the app

Apple Store link

I personally don't have an iPad, so I can't open it up, but it seems potentially interesting.

Compatibility: iOS 6.0 or later. iPad support.
Here's the English version:

A PDF (or EPUB) version would be nice so I could read it on my e-reader / computer.

I had one for a few years in the 70s. Forgot all about it, sold it when I sold my SV and a few duplicate box cameras

Or any other ebook format. It's silly not to make this content available in a format that can be displayed more broadly.
