At CES 2010, the combination e-book/Web-browsing tablet finally gets a ship date.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> I'm Tom Merritt from CNET.com here at CES 2010, looking at a familiar piece of equipment, the Entourage Edge. Now, you've seen this before. Ina Fried did a video about it, but they're launching it here at CES. It'll be available in February for $490.00. If you haven't heard about it, it's an E Ink Wacom Tablet on one side -- or a Wacom Tablet, as we might say -- and on the other side is Android 1.6. So you use the Wi-Fi on here to surf the web, read magazines, read articles, do that sort of thing. And over here, you have the E Ink side, where you can take a stylus and make notes on it. So, unlike most E Ink readers, you can actually type up stuff, you know, take a little notes in the margins, just like you would on a regular book. Now, it's a little bit slow. You have to, you know, pitch things from the menu to make certain notes. It's a little like the Apple Newton, but I haven't seen anything else yet like it out there on the market. Once again, available for $490.00, shipping in February. It's the Entourage Edge. At CES 2010, I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:00 [ Music ]
