Entourage launches Pocket eDGe dual-touchscreen tablet

updated 02:45 am EDT, Sun October 31, 2010

Ships with embedded Linux with Google Android 1.6

Entourage has launched its Pocket eDGE dual touchscreen tablet, which Electronista first had a hands-on experience with in early January. It incorporats a monochrome 6-inch Wacom Penabled E ink panel on the left and a 7-inch color resistive touchscreen display on the right. Like the prototype that we examined at CES, it is still running Android 1.6 as well as Embedded Linux, although the trackball on the right has now been replaced by an optical touchpad.

The Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g enabled device includes 3GB of on-board storage available to users, a 2-megapixel camera capable of capturing video, a USB port, and a microSD slot. Its pre-loaded apps include a web browser, Documents to Go, email, journal, music player, notepad, camera, camcorder, audio recorder, calculator, calendar, contacts, dictionary, file explorer, You Tube, and a reader app. It also ships with a Create and Share suite of apps that allows photo editing, video editing and PDF converting. As a bonus, the device includes a complimentary one-year subscription to Wired Magazine.

The supplied software disc is compatible with only Windows 7, Vista and XP. The 1.35-pound Entourage Pocket eDGe Wi-Fi comes in red and black color options for $499. However, it is currently being solely distributed through the Home Shopping Network for $399. A 3G capable version was previously mooted, but no details have emerged as to whether it will eventually make it to market as well.

    $499 is not correct. You may be referring to the 10" version that was around in January at CES.
