For those who can’t make up their mind: netbook or eReader, enTourage has you covered: the eDGe, a clamshell device that is half netbook, half eReader. But it looks like you’ll have a to wait a bit longer for the eDGe to make an appearance, and pay a bit more for the privilege of owing one.
It’s not a bad little device. It runs on the Android operating system, and has a 10.1-inch LCD touchscreen display with a resolution of 1024 x 600, and a 9.7-inch e-Ink display with a resolution of 1200 x 825. The e-Ink side is Wacom “Penabled”. Both Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) and Bluetooth are built-in. It has 4GB of internal memory, an SD card slot, and two USB ports. Battery life depends, with 6 hours running the LCD screen and 16 hours running the eReader screen.
The eReader side handles ePub and PDF documents. And it can manage a wide range of video and audio file formats
Anticipated out now, shipping has been delayed until March, 2010. And the price of the base Midnight Blue model has jumped from $490 to $499. (Other colors will cost you another $40.)
