Acer didn't make any sweeping announcements at Computex
like it has in previous years
, but it did
show up with its new LumiRead L600 e-reader
. While it was under glass for the entirety of the trade show, we were able to snag a peek at the ultrathin reader, which looks strikingly similar to the Kindle with its 6-inch, 800 x 600-resolution E Ink display, joystick and 37 key QWERTY keyboard. We couldn't get them to remove it from the display box, but the interface looked fairly streamlined, and we were able to sneak a shot of the ISBP bar scanner on its backside, which will allow for scanning a book in for a later online purchase. We wish we had more impressions for you, but we found out that it's powered by a 532Mhz Freescale iMX357 processor and has 128MB of RAM. We're hoping to actually toy around with one soon enough, but you'll have to deal with a gallery worth of shots below for now.
