The Pharmacy chain will also offer a $179 eBook Reader dubbed LookBook.
Pharamcy CVS is apparently pushing this Holiday Shopping season into consumer electronics. Of course they operate on the low-end, but it is kind of interesting what they are offering along meds. Engadget got two scans that show a $99.99 Sylanvia netbook and a wireless eBook reader dubbed LookBook.
Before you get too excited the Sylvania netbook is a Windows CE machine and has only a 7-inch screen. Similar devices have popped up at retail chains also last year and you can actually buy one on Amazon for $105 right now. If it would be an Android Netbook it would be much more interesting.
The LookBook eBook reader is a risky offer by CVS. The eReader has a price above that of the Amazon Kindle. It tries to impress with a 7-inch colore screen, wireless, 512MB storage and full keyboard. It comes pre-loaded with 150 books. The ebook supplier is kobobooks.
CVS starts to advertise the LookBook end of September. This could be some indication that Black Friday sales will indeed start earlier this year. I don't see CVS to cut the price of these two products during the holiday shopping season. They will push them again and again starting end of September.
The $99.99 Sylvania netbook is on sale now at CVS and already got reviewed. Get the details.
