openmoko wikireader

The Openmoko WikiReader will be able to receive its Spring 2010 software update now which offers math equations that are rendered as crisp bitmap images, alongside updates to its database of more tha 3 million Wikipedia articles. Apart from that, the on-screen keyboard has been refreshed to resemble key presses similar to that on the iPhone (we wished they wouldn’t have copied it that blatantly though), while readers will certainly appreciate fluid scrolling and the indispensable back button. Of course, would you rather access Wikipedia from your computer at home or a tablet PC instead of forking out $29 for a year’s subscription service to Wikipedia alongside two pre-loaded microSD memory cards?
