So here we have one more eReader coming to the the market soon. Sharper Image is launching their new ebook reader device, named Literati, that is expected to hit the retail shelves in October. The device is directly taking on competition from Amazon with specs that are pretty similar to the Kindle. The Literati will feature a 7-inches screen and is equipped with a physical QWERTY keyboard and integrated Wi-Fi. There is no 3G connectivity though and you can get access to Kobo’s online bookstore. Talking about the display, well, it is not going to be touchscreen and the navigation should happen using the keyboard and sideward buttons (to turn pages). The display itself is color-LCD and has a resolution of 800×480 pixels.
Literati is available at a price of $159 – $20 more than Amazon Kindle’s Wi-Fi only edition – and should be available on Best Buy stores by October.
