Sharper Image has unveiled their Literati eReader. The MerchSource-made device sports a seven-inch, 800×480 LCD to show cover art and photos in books. It also sports Wi-Fi to get online but only uses it for downloading books from Kobo’s online bookstore.
The device uses a Kindle-like keyboard below the screen and side buttons for turning pages. This model will arrive in October for $159 at stores like Best Buy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, JC Penney, Kohl’s and Macy’s.
