Entourage Edge

Sure, the Barnes & Noble Nook is cool and all (and even cooler now that it's been rooted). But who wants one screen when you can have two? (Why, that's twice as many!)

Enter the Entourage Edge, which CNET's Ina Fried got her hands on recently.

Reminiscent of the non-announced, exists-only-in-leaks Microsoft Courier, the 3-pound Edge sports dual screens that let you flip information from one to the other. The screen on the left is e-ink, 9. inches at 1200x825 pixels. On the right is an LED screen, 10.1 inches at 1024x600.

WiFi b/g are on board, and it has an SD card slot and a pair of USB ports, in addition to a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Entourage Edge also supports Bluetooth and USB keyboards.

As the device is Android in nature, you can run Market apps on the right-hand side. All in all, pretty cool for something that weighs just 2.5 pounds. Price, on the other hand, may be an issue, with the Edge, erm, edging toward $500. But, you get a lot more screen for the money.

Entourage says the Edge will be available in February 2010.

This looks really neat!

With every idea there's a critic... Add Accelerometer, GPS, compass, and optional 3G and we might have a winner!

I think this concept is the right way to go. E-Ink is the best technology for reading information (low power, and allows you to read outdoors, something all of this "freeing" technology is doing a pretty poor job of, considering how long it's been around), and the LCD is better for interacting (something the E-Ink doesn't do very well. Prediction? It won't make enough money for the people that make decisions, and instead of sticking with it and improving the concept, it'll turn into another piece of junk which might have become a worthwhile tool. Skiff skiff skiff skiff skiff, where did you go?
