| Is it Linux powered?  You bet your bottom 
| dollar it is.  That's the part that shocked 
| me.  When I first picked it up, I figured that 
| I had ended up with something that had a self 
| contained IOS that was likely limited and 
| proprietary.  Boy was I surprised to find out 
| that it wasn't.  And I stumbled onto that fact 
| while loading it with test movies.

Sean Moss-Pultz, CEO of failed startup OpenMoko, launches WikiReader; AAA-battery powered encyclopedia

,----[ Quote ]
| In short: the WikiReader has no cellular
| radio, or any radios at all actually,
| inside. Itâs just an offline scratch
| resistant tempered glass capacitive touch
| screen device with 3 buttons, and 3 million
| Wikipedia articles stored on a built in,
| removable, and upgradable, microSD card. It
| runs on 2x AAA batteries and lasts for 1
| year if used for 15 minutes per day, so
| that is a little over 90 hours of use.
| Thomas Meyerhoffer designed it, and it will
| cost only $99. Youâll be able to purchase
| it from here âsoonâ according to the
| website.
