    Entourage Edge Dual-screen eBook Reader Is Dead And Gone

    We had high hopes for the Edge dual-screen ebook reader last year but it looks like said ereader is now dead. We were actually quite excited. After all, our own Scott Merrill wrote: The enTourage eDGe is a functional, easy-to-use device that currently defies formal classification. It’s primarily going to be useful to academics and people who spend a lot of time in books, but need more… Read More

    CrunchDeals: enTourage Pocket eDGe Dualbook

    Disclaimer: This deal is only for those that know what they’re really buying. This isn’t a Kindle killer nor was it ever supposed to be. It’s a tablet designed for academia. This Woot deal puts the older model at a nice pricepoint — but once again, if you know what you’re buying. It’s a novel device, running Android 1.6 with a 7-inch color LCD on one side and a… Read More

    New Entourage Pocket Edge: Same Device, Smaller Screens

    We reviewed the Entourage Edge back in April; Scott was able to appreciate aspects of it I had dismissed out of hand, citing the "purpose" of e-readers. Of course, everyone has a different purpose in mind when they go in for a device like this, and it looks like enough Edges have been sold to justify a new model. The Pocket Edge is, as you might expect, a very similar device, but smaller and… Read More

    Review: enTourage eDGe dualbook

    To say that the enTourage eDGe dualbook is "just an e-reader with a bolted-on netbook" (or vice versa) is to pretty dramatically miss the entire point of this thing. The eDGe exists in a category all by itself, because it does an awful lot more than just an e-reader or just a netbook. As a unique product, there are a couple of unfortunate shortcomings, but on the whole the dualbook represents an… Read More

    I received the Entourage eDGe review unit the other day, and have been playing with it quite a bit. A full review is coming soon, but suffice to say that I like what I've seen so far. Here are a handful of photos to whet your appetite for my forthcoming review! Read More

    enTourage eDGe dualbook gets deals with academia

    The enTourage eDGe dualbook made its official debut at CES last week, along with lots of other e-book readers, dual-screen laptops, and more. We mentioned the eDGe book store, but that book store is gaining usefulness with the announcement of deals with publishers McGraw Hill, Oxford University Press and John Wiley & Sons, which will bring a number of academic texts to the dualbook. And… Read More

    Entourage announces e-book store for eDGe dualbook

    The Entourage eDGe, the world's first "dualbook" is a dual-screen laptop / e-book reader hybrid thingie. The laptop portion is pretty straightforward, but what about the e-book? In the already crowded e-book space, how can the eDGe compete? Well, today they've announced they're very own e-book store. That's right, a device that is not yet in anyone's hands now has its own bookstore. All sarcasm… Read More

  • It's a netbook! It's an e-reader! It's the enTourage eDGe!

    It's a netbook! It's an e-reader! It's the enTourage eDGe!

    Reading e-books on a netbook is a nuisance, right? But e-readers are a pain because they're a single-function device, which means your man-bag gets filled with yet-another-specialty-gadget. Behold the enTourage eDGe: "the world’s first dualbook, combining the functions of an e-reader, netbook, notepad, and audio/video recorder and player in one." Read More
