Quite a few stores will be offering an ereader for their Black Friday sales (on the day after Thanksgiving). I've been waiting to write this post until I was sure all the adverts had been leaked. I'm pretty sure I got them all.The Sharper Image Literati, a Kindle clone with a 7" LCD screen, will be on sale at 4 stores (I thought Sears would have it but now I can't find the advert). I wouldn't get it, myself. Here's the review (white and black).
- Best Buy (black model) $119
- Macy's (black model) $129
- Kohl's (white model) $99
- Hastings (black model) $129
The Shift3 Lookbook, a poor relation of the Literati, will also be on sale at CVS for $118 (review).
The Aluratek Libre will be sold by Sears for $89, which is $30 off the Borders retail. This one might be worth getting.
Augen's The Book (another 7" LCD Kindle Clone) has shown up in a Menards's add for $69 on Black Friday (review). This might actually be the best value of the day. I thought it was a decent ereader, and at $69 it's not a big risk.
The Pandigital Novel tablet will make an appearance at Best Buy, Kmart, and Radio Shack. Best Buy will be selling the black Novel for $139 and Radio Shack will carry the white one for $149 (snicker). Yes, RD is rather pathetic in this regard. They just announced the Sony PRS-300 in yesterday's advert.
