The K1 and K2 have the same functionality, though with the smaller screen.

The browser is VERY limited - basically straight HTML only - but it works. The cursor mostly just hoops between the links on the page; it is passable.

I wouldn't pretend to use this as my primary browser on the road but it is functional. Oh, and prepare to see the battery life dwindle as you use the radio more and more.

not right now.
And you need to hack it before reading books or websites that are not written in English.

Dumb question, but how did you do the screen capture?
