The Entourage Edge is a dual-screen portable device that combines the benefits of an e-book reader's electronic ink display with a color screen tablet computer.
The Edge is currently available for $499, and is offered in six different colors (navy blue, black, red, white, light blue, and gray).

The hinged design of the Edge allows each screen 360 degrees of rotation, yet are stiff enough to act as a kickstand for hands-free operation.
With two full-size USB ports and the ability to reorient the screen for landscape or portrait view, users can connect an external keyboard and use the Edge as a capable word processor.

The Entourage Edge (seen here with the color screen folded behind the e-ink display) comes packaged with a power adapter and a Mini-USB cable.

On the top edge of the e-ink display, the Edge offers covered slots for SIM card and an SD memory card. A switch for the internal Wi-Fi and a Mini-USB port are located to the right of these slots.

All folded up, the Edge looks like a common Netbook computer. In this orientation the measurements are 10.75 inches wide, 8.25 inches tall, and an inch thick. Total weight is approximately 3 pounds, which is a bit on the hefty side compared with single-screen e-book readers.

Are two screens better than one? Casual readers will probably find the Edge's two-screen design more bulky than useful, but students and academics may find the interplay of text, word processing, and Web a powerful tool.

Just minutes out of the box, the advantages of having an e-ink display to complement the color LCD become immediately apparent. Both screens include an antiglare coating, but the e-ink display is exceedingly readable under direct sunlight.
