Literally an encyclopedia that fits in your pocket, Openmoko Inc.'s WikiReader is a palm-sized touch screen device that contains that more than 3 million articles available on the online Wikipedia site.
Unfortunately, the Wikireader can't keep up with the constantly edited and changing treasure trove of information that is Wikipedia. But the manufacturer offers ongoing content updates through a mail subscription (yes, they will literally mail you two memory cards a year for $29) or free downloads.
The Wikireader costs $99 and is available only online.
One of Palm's newest smart phones, the Pixi is a keyboard-equipped, chic little device that lets you place calls, surf the Web, listen to music and more.
Something like a younger sibling of the Palm Pre, the Pixi is slightly smaller, lighter and less powerful. But for teens or people who want a device that can do just a bit more than a regular cell phone, this might make a great gift.
With a two-year contract from Sprint the phone costs $99, but some retailers have slashed prices for the holidays. Amazon, for example, sells the phone for $25 with a two-year contract.
