eBook readers aren’t really useful for fast moving graphics, such as gaming or Flash content, due to the slow page refresh rates of E Ink displays, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try to do something other than reading an eBook on an E Ink display. Opera has announced that its browser will be bundled together with Acer’s upcoming LumiRead eBook reader. With a 6-inch display, you will have quite a bit of real estate to read whatever is displayed on the browser, and there is a thumbnail at the bottom of the panel, making navigation a little bit easier. That being said, it’s hard to imagine picking up the LumiRead with the intention to browse the web, unless there aren’t any other devices around. Of course, we’re not complaining, since it’s nice to have the feature instead of not having it. However, it’ll be interesting to see how many folks actually decide to use the feature. Would you?
