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.

Swinging combo of an E Ink display and LCD screen. Journal for note-taking is actually useful. Innovative hardware design

Sluggish. Poor touchscreen performance. No 3G connectivity. Weak battery life. Smaller selection of online books in the bookstore compared to Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com

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...

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...

Not worth the headache

 

Money not worth the fustration

the ideal of reading andcoming across something you need to research, you double tap and it opens an internet browser for you. Great that it does that

Clunky and thick. Trouble getting updates

Consumer review by:

This product rocks by being dual purpose and dual fun.

 

All told, I like the product because it doesn't cost so much and it is dual functional.

I like the fact that I can go on the internet just like a regular computer minus the large size and the fact I can read books without luging so many around

Without a doubt my main concern is the charge up hole location. I mean when I have the thing in my lap, that cord is somewhat annoying. I think it would be better atop instead of on the bottom

Consumer review by:

I like that this device has the best of both worlds.

 

I like the product. I like the color and the ink screen and the fact that it doesn't matter if my nails are long it still works for me, but I don't think that it is worth the $499 price tag. For that reason it's not worth it to me. There are other...

It has the ink and color touch screen that isn't heat sensor. It has a camera you can down load and watch movies and it is small enough to put in my purse

It took more than 10 min to register because it wouldn't accept my password since it didn't have a number in it

Great device!!

 

This is a great product that seems to be getting better and better as more updates come out. It is relatively light weight (though much heavier than kindles, nooks, or ipads), and very functional. As a scientist, I read many PDF documents. The ability...
