A new color eBook reader is hitting the shelves. The Sharper Image branded Literati digital reader features a 7-inch color LCD screen with 800x480px resolution, Wifi, miniSD card slot, 512MB memory. This color eBook reader looks pretty stylish and is on sale for only $149.99 on Best Buy. In comparison an E-ink greyscale Amazon Kindle sells for $139.99. The color screen has advantages for reading magazines and photo heavy books, but the E-ink display is still the better option for long reading sessions and you can use it in bright sunlight.
The Literati is though a solid offering as it comes with 150 preloaded classics books and connects to the Kobo eBook store. Other features of the Literati include QWERTY keyboard, ePub, PDF, txt and html format support and built-in dictionary. What is not supported on the Literati is web browsing and apps like games.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
