The Skiff Reader, slightly larger than Amazon's Kindle DX, will download e-books and other content via Sprint's 3G wireless network.

The Skiff Reader is just over a quarter-inch thick and features an e-paper display based on a thin, flexible sheet of stainless-steel foil and developed by LG Display. Other e-reader screens use a rigid screen design. Price: N/A.
