Gearlog has the goods on the enTourage eDGe, a dual-screen eBook reader that features a 9.7-inch electronic ink display next to a 10.1-inch LCD, first mentioned here a few weeks ago. After reading their description, it’s clear I should have taken a closer look back then.
The 10.75-x 8.25-x 1-inch (HWD) device, at 2.75 pounds. is larger and heavier than most eBook readers, thanks to its dual displays and vastly superior connectivity options. The device’s LCD offers a 1024-by-600-pixel resolution, and features resistive touch, responding to anything from a stylus to your finger for navigation. The 1,200-by-825-pixel electronic ink display is Wacom Penabled, so you’ll need to use the included stylus for navigation and note taking.
Whoa, did I read that last part correctly? Are my eyes deceiving me when I look at that photo? There’s a Wacom Penabled active digitizer under that e-ink screen for pen input? Okay, enTourage, you scared me off earlier with that $490 price tag, but now I’m really interested. Instead of seeing a pricey eReader, I’m seeing a mobile ink blogging machine, and I like the sound of that. You extend that pen input over to the color LCD in a future version, and I will be unable to resist.
BTW, I must say, that name is a real pain to write. With auto-correction or predictive recognition, it would take a ridiculous amount of time to hammer out “enTourage eDGe.”
