Openmoko’s WikiReader handheld Wikipedia viewer, which we reviewed late last year, is now able to display the entire contents of Project Gutenberg. Project Gutenberg is the oldest digital library which contains more than 33,000 digital books. All of these books have been converted and compressed so that users can download the entire Project Gutenberg library onto a 4GB microSD card, which can then be installed in the WikiReader for reading without a need for a connection to the Internet. Current WikiReader owners can update their device to add this capability by visiting http://www.thewikireader.com/update/.
