Acer, through a distribution agreement with Barnes and Noble, has officially announced their first e-reader device which they are calling the LumiRead. This device will feature a 6 inch E-Ink display, WiFi and 3G connectivity, and 2GB of onboard sorage which is expandable via a microSD slot. The LumiRead also boasts an ISBN scanner that will allow you to scan a physical book for later research and possible purchase online.

 

The distribution agreement not only covers Barnes and Noble and their over 1 million titles, but also China's Founder and Germany's Libri.de, adding another 4 million titles ensuring a huge selection of possible reading material upon release. A full QUERTY keyboard is also included for easier web browsing and information sharing via the wireless connectivity.

 

No price was announced, but Acer expects the LumiRead to release in Q3 2010. Check out Acer's full press release at the Source Link.
