Sharper Image unveils Literati eReader

Those who have had their fair share of Web-based games in the past might have fond memories of Literati over at Yahoo! Games, but Sharper Image takes a different route with their eReader, also known as Literati. This MerchSource-made device will follow the Kindle’s footsteps in some ways where its design is concerned, bringing a 7-inch LCD display at 800 x 480 resolution that is decent for e-book reading, but even better to display cover art in all its vibrant color glory. You will be able to download books from Kobo’s online bookstore via the Literati’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, although there is no chance of browsing the Web with this which might be a bummer considering how convergence devices are the trend. Expected to hit the market this October for $159, we have our reservations on the Literati when it comes to its popularity and sales success then.
