Access to the largest compilation of semi-vetted knowledge, at your fingertips? Sounds like a man’s inner fact-nerd wet dream, and it’s yours for $99. Earlier today, Openmoko announced the WikiReader, essentially Wikipedia in the palm of your hand. If you’re wondering, WikiReader doesn’t require internet access, but rather relies on free quarterly updates available, unlike your car’s built-in GPS. Two AAA batteries will power this mini Edison for three months. Designed by Thomas Meyerhoffer (of Apple and surfboard fame), the WikiRedaer is designed to be simple. Three buttons simple.

Cost: $99
