Hands-On Review of the Entourage Edge

December 16, 2009, By Radimir Bobev


Ina Fried from CNET has just done a hands-on review of the Entourage Edge. A controlled demonstration by the device’s developers can never compare to such a review, so we were naturally excited to watch it. The device has two displays – one of them is a 9.7″ E-Ink display, and the other a 10″ LCD hybrid with Wi-Fi support.

In the video, we can see the Android OS working on the resistive touchscreen display and being used for browsing the Internet and launching applications. On the other side, there’s the E-Ink display which can read EPUB and PDF files, and also allow you to take notes and manipulate the text with the stylus included with the device.

There’s also the possibility to move content between the two displays, as well as record audio (with two microphones, actually – one used for recording and one for noise cancellation).

The device still has bugs and it “feels like a first-generation product” according to the review though. It’s expected to launch in February at the price of $490 – and we can’t wait to see it in action.
