Stuff the Entire Wikipedia in a Stocking

Touchscreen is easy to read inside and outdoors. WikiReader also comes with parental control that filters out content that may be too adult for children.

Two AAA batteries are included with the device.The WikiReader is available on Amazon.com and on www.thewikireader.com for $99. During December, Openmoko is running a promotion on its site that offers a 30 percent discount to previous owners of WikiReaders.
