Entourage Edge Preview

Entourage Edge


The Entourage Edge is one of a few new devices to build off the traditional ebook reader concept. With its unique "dualbook" design, the Edge combines the features of an ebook reader and a netbook in one. It features a 9.7-inch E Ink screen—the same screen size as the Kindle DX—and a 10.1-inch color LCD touchscreen.

In addition to being able to display Adobe EPUB and PDF ebooks, the Edge features a Wacom Tablet for writing notes and drawings directly on the E Ink screen with a stylus. The LCD screen is touch sensitive too, for both fingers and the stylus.

The LCD screen can also display content for reading with a backlight, as well as videos, web pages, pictures, etc. And it can be used as a keyboard, or you can plug a keyboard into one of the USB ports.

The Edge has Wi-Fi for browsing the web, it can send emails and IMs, can capture audio and video with the built-in microphone and webcam, and has a Google Android operating system that can run many different third-party applications.

It comes with Documents To Go software, giving it support for Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.

The Edge is currently available from the Entourage Edge website for $499/$539, depending on the color. The lowest priced model is midnight blue, the other colors are black, white, red, and ice blue.
