COOL-ER reader to get AT&T 3G next year

COOL-ER next gen e-book device will go online

Relative e-book newcomer Interead today said its next-generation COOL-ER reader would come with AT&T-supplied 3G in the US. The company hasn't provided full features but says that models will also come equipped with Wi-Fi; whether or not both will be found in the same model isn't evident. At least the 3G models should be available sometime in mid-2010.

The swap marks another win for AT&T. It already provides 3G in the Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook, and Plastic Logic's QUE proReader should also rely on the same network next year.

COOL-ER readers currently cost $250 for a 5.6-inch version that depends on SD cards and USB for books. It's available through several channels and should be sold through QVC on Friday.
