Received a press release about this new ereader carrying the Sharper Image name. The Literati will ship in early October and will be available in over 7,000 stores including Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, JC Penny, Kohl’s and Macys.
It’s powered by Kobo and includes 25 free classics. It has a 7″ color screen (but the specs don’t say what type. I’ve asked the PR firm to find out.) and “Intelligent” WiFi. No mention of battery life yet, but it will come with a case and a coupon for automatically loading another 125 free titles.
Update: the PR firm got back to me and said that it has an LCD screen with a 480×800 resolution.
