My friend answered the question about the support for web content but not browsing.
"The reason why browsing isn't supported is that the screen of eink on the device would't do fast updates (read: Video). Wifi is intended for content download."
Although it seems that it could have a browser it just would't be usuable with all the internet
Probably ok for text pages but anything else would result in a somewhat less than optimal experience
Since it uses linux maybe someone will find an answer
