wikireader gutenberg update

You might think that Openmoko’s WikiReader might be a little limited since it’s only capable of providing offline access to Wikipedia. Of course, that itself is a great feature, since you’ll be carrying around one of the most up-to-date Encyclopedias in the world, but many folks wonder if the hardware would support other applications. Now the folks over at Openmoko have released an update that allows you to access the complete Project Gutenberg library of 33,000 eBooks. Of course, if you want to store the entire text of Wikipedia and the Project Gutenberg library, you’ll need a 16GB memory card, but considering the amount of knowledge that you’re carrying around with you, that’s definitely something impressive. The WikiReader costs you $99 and comes with 2 AAA batteries. If you already own one, you can download the update online.
