A company called Openmoko announced the WikiReader today. They say it's the creation of a former Apple designer. It runs on two AAA batteries, which power the device for months, according to the company. The gadget has "instant on," and uses an Amazon-Kindle like black-and-white screen.
The WikiReader costs $99 at Wikireader.com and amazon.com. For $29, you can buy an annual subscription for updated microSD cards.
Here's why I think the WikiReader might be ideal for digital nomads.
