Leaked marketing materials detail sales

CVS is reportedly planning on selling a $100 netbook and $180 e-book reader, both built by Sylvania. As expected, the netbook does not run Windows 7 or XP. The budget device will be powered by Windows CE, according to leaked marketing materials posted on Engadget. Additional hardware specs remain unclear, although the advertisement highlights e-mail, web browsing, social networking and video streaming functionality.

The Look Book e-book reader features a 7-inch color LCD, full QWERTY keyboard, wireless connectivity, and 512GB of internal memory. Users will be able to expand the memory with an SD card, while books will be available from the Kobo portal.

The Look Book marketing sheet points to a launch date of September 19. An exact date isn't provided for the netbook, however both of the devices appear to be slated for the same "early Christmas" time-frame.
