Well, we didn't exactly
have high hopes when we got first glimpse at the CVS LookBook
from a leaked flier
, and our lowered expectations have now been satisfied. The Digital Reader
has taken the thing for a spin and, as it turns out, it's an ever so slightly modified version of the Literati
that scored its own terrible review
just a few weeks ago. The $150 CVS version suffers the same issues, including a complete inability to read e-books downloaded to SD card or copied onto internal memory. Also, battery life is poor, performance is slow, the margins are off, and there's no web browser. Positives? Well, it has physical buttons for page turning and... yeah. With the Kindle
just a click away at $139, it's hard to see anyone wanting the LookBook, you may be tempted while picking up your 'scripts.
