The world’s first dualbook has rolled out of the house of enTourage. The eDGE eBook reader that debuted at the CES a while ago, is one piece of technology that doubles the experience.

The device that comes as a   9.7-inches black-and-white E-ink screen on the one side and 10.1-inches LCD color touchscreen on the other has been built in such a way that it can be flipped to create tablet-like looks. enTourage has incorporated stylus that enables you to scribble notes on the margin of the E-ink side and also highlight text to send to an index. The device boasts of 4GB of internal memory and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability. The 4GB of internal memory, expandable through an SD slot and twin USB ports, as well as ePub and PDF support

Capable of doubling up as a mini-netbook, notepad or and audio-video recorder, the LCD side of the dualbook runs Android software. It also has a large onscreen USB keyboard, plus the option of an external USB or Bluetooth keyboard. It is so small that the size specs read 1-inch when closed, but weighs 3lbs. The company has, however, given 3G capability a miss.

The device also incorporates an internal microphone and speakers, plus audio / video input and output by way of a 3.5mm headphone and microphone jack.

enTourage plans to bring to the North American market its new eDGE eBook this February for US$490.
