Entourage has come out with their Pocket eDGe dual touchscreen tablet with Embedded Linux and the device runs on Android 1.6 OS. The device gets a monochrome 6-inch Wacom Penabled E ink panel on the left and on the right the company has incorporated a 7-inch color resistive touchscreen display.

The device was featured earlier this year at the CES and the main difference in the latest version from the prototype is the optical touchpad that replaces the trackball on the right. The connectivity options of the device include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g and USB support.

The company has provided microSD slots to expand the memory of the device that includes 3GB of on-board storage.  Web browser, Documents to Go, email, journal, music player, notepad, camera, camcorder, audio recorder, calculator, calendar, contacts, dictionary, file explorer, YouTube, and a reader application comes pre-loaded with the device.

It is also crafted with a 2MP camera that helps in capturing video also. Photo editing, video editing and PDF converting are simplified by the device as it is loaded by Create and Share suite of apps and in addition the buyers will be complemented by a one-year subscription to Wired Magazine.

Windows 7, Vista and XP are compatible with the software discs that are supplied by the company. The company offers the device that weighs just 1.35 pounds in red and black color options for $499, but it is currently distributed through the Home Shopping Network for $399. There are no hints about the details or specs of the 3G capable version of the device that is expected to make the entry into the markets in the near future.
