Entourage Edge

 

Good contrast on e-ink screen. Can take notes on the e-ink screen. Google Android 1.6 OS offers color Web browsing, voice recording, and plenty of other useful apps

Ungainly design. Very heavy. Huge AC adapter. Plastic construction feels flimsy. Color touch screen is too dim, lacks contrast, and has narrow viewing angles. Slow boot-up. No 3G option for buying e-books over the air

With two screens, one e-ink and one color, on paper, the Entourage Edge sounds like a fantastic idea. But a high price, hefty weight, and overall cumbersome design spell doom for this hybrid device.

Dual-Screen E-Reader Makes a Half-Assed Debut

 

Twice the screen but half the quality, the Entourage eDGe is a lofty eReader that falls short in nearly every area.

Entourage Edge review

 

Is it an Android tablet? An e-reader? Just a sweet gadget with two screens? Truth is the Entourage Edge is a little bit of everything, and that's exactly

Intriguing dualscreen form factor ; Touchscreen LCD and E-Ink displays ; Included stylus for taking notes on E-Ink screen

Large and bulky design ; Frustrating resistive touchscreen ; Lacking e-book selection

Entourage Edge Review

 

The Entourage Edge is an innovative product, and in practice the eReader/tablet combination works better than we expected. We like the flexibility and expandability of Android coupled with a large, touch-enabled eReader screen. However, the fact that...

Crisp electronic paper display with stylus support, Built-in journal and voice recorder for note-taking, Hinge allows for multiple positions, Android OS tablet for Web, e-mail, and media, Includes DocumentsToGo

Heavy for a tablet / ereader, Apps store not yet online, Webcam not yet functional, Store stocks fewer bestsellers than competition, No 3G connectivity, Narrow viewing angles

Reviews: HTC Desire & Entourage eDGe

 

A couple pretty interesting reviews popped up today on Engadget and CrunchGear, covering the HTC Desire and Entourage eDGe, respectively. We thought you'd like

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...

Entourage Edge Reader

 

To be able to truly replicate the entire traditional reading experience, electronic readers should have the capability to dog-ear pages, underline important texts, or write notes on the margins as they would with traditional paper books. It's a gap in...

The Edge’s writing capabilities is definitely its biggest advantage. The device is especially useful for students. Just in case your Edge goes haywire, the device lets you store backups of your books, complete with text add-ons (notes, scribbles, stick...

One of the downside to having two screens is resultant weight. At 3 pounds, it’s twice the weight of the iPad and five times the weight a Kindle. For a device intended for long periods of use, , the Edge simply feels too heavy. Holding it after about...

The Edge is already available for pre-order for $499. The first eReader to successfully integrate full note-taking and writing capabilities, the Entourage Edge is the long-awaited answer to the call for entire textbook experience. The device’s vitality...

Entourage Edge review

 

It's still not officially available in the UK, but a quick scout arround online allows you to grab the Entourage Edge from various webshops for around £532 including taxes and delivery.

Many of the Entourage Edge's shortcomings recall those of the iPad, but the Edge lacks the iPad's compensating sexy portability. At twice the weight of the iPad the Entourage Edge is relatively heavy for a portable; and the Edge is also a solid inch...

A clever product now well implemented

 

Bought on Woot, at a deal price... but on reflection not a deal and Woot says that they are not in the least bit interested in resolving the problems. I won't be buying from Woot again.

The concept is creative

The execution is weak. While a good design, the main screen is of poor quality so its difficult to read. Further, the system doesn't support the Android Marketplace so installing apps is a gruelling process ; And although I've bumped it to Androis 2.x...
