In investigating the Literati, it appears that it is based on the same Ingenic system chip as "The Book", but who can say about the peripheral chips? It's doubtful, but not impossible, that the Literati firmware could work on the TB.
From preliminary reviews that I've read, the Literati doesn't include any audio or video playback functions, and the wifi is tied to the Kobo bookstore. I don't know if it has web browsing capabilities beyond directly buying e-books. In all, it seems like a less capable reader for a higher price.
