Ereader Followup enTourage eDGe

first_imgIn our recent post about e-readers, we covered a handful of the latest e-book readers in the marketplace today.  I discovered another e-reader that I felt could not be ignored: the enTourage eDGe.This device is along the same vein as Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Spring Design’s Alex in that it is a dual screen e-reader.  Unlike like those two, the eDGE unfolds like a book, whereas the Nook and Alex are a split screen.  Not only can you download e-books, you can also take digital notes with a stylus, watch movies, listen to music, send email, and more.  Let’s see how accessible it is:enTourage eDGe e-readerWeighing in at under 3 lbs to make it very portableRemovable battery lasts up to 16 hours on one chargeVirtual keyboard with bluetooth option for external keyboardCan flip to either landscape or portrait view for comfortable useE-ink technology prevents glare on screenenTourage eDGe does not include Text to Speech, but their website claims that they are working on it.  Curious to see more?  I was!  Gearlog has several detailed photos of eDGe.  If you’re wanting to invest in this particular device, you can pre-order one for February for $490.Share this…TwitterFacebookPinterestLinkedInEmailPrint RelatedE-Readers Galore!
