Literati Wireless Electronic Reader

The Literati™ Wireless Electronic Reader

The Literati™ wireless electronic reader was made for 'the literati' – the men and women (literally the “lettered people”) interested in literature.

The new 'Literati wireless electronic' reader doesn’t require you to read it's operating manual, or read it's instruction booklet. Nor does it require a degree in technology and gadgetry. The Literati reading experience begins with a simple bookshelf interface, from which users choose a book, and turn the digital pages

The Literati features a built-in bookstore powered by the Kobo global eReading service (, giving readers access to nearly two million titles (1.8 million of them free). Select from New York Times bestsellers, new releases, cookbooks, children’s books, magazines, newspapers, and more. Each Literati is preloaded with 25 treasured classics, and includes a special coupon code for automatically loading another 125 pre-selected free titles directly into the Literati user’s account. Users can also purchase and download new reading material with just a few clicks.

Some of the features of Literati:
  • Supports industry standard 'ePub' format, PDF, TXT, and other file formats
  • built-in Wi-Fi connection to a global bookstore
  • 7-inch color LCD screen (480 x 800 resolution)
  • 512Mb memory, expandable to 8Gb with SD memory card (not included)
  • Up to 6 hours battery life
  • 9.5" inches tall x 5" inches wide, ½" inch thick, and weighing only 14.4 ounces
  • Night mode with inverted (white text on a black background) backlit screen
  • Access Literati libraries from laptops, desktop computers, and smart phones with the free Kobo app

The Literati’s greatest innovation is its out-of-the-box simplicity. The device has been designed with easy-to-use navigation, allowing readers to spend quality time immersed in reading and not wasting time figuring out how to use the device. Buttons on either side of the Literati allow users to quickly turn pages backwards and forwards. And, as they read, users can look up words using the built-in dictionary, and type notes with the QWERTY keyboard.

The Literati offers a customizable interface which allows owners to personalize their own bookshelf with a variety of designs; typefaces, and font size. Additionally, you can adjust screen brightness, and save your bookmarks. The Literati also comes with a high-quality case.

Available in either black or white models, the Literati’s 7-inch color screen, built-in Wi-Fi connection to a global bookstore, portability and durability make it an appealing choice for those literati who simply want to read.
