Plastic Logic QUE axed after delays

Plastic Logic today decided to drop its originally planned QUE ProReader altogether. The e-paper firm said it would instead focus on a new generation version of the QUE.

iPad vs. Kindle vs. HP slate: a close look

01/27, 9:40pm

Apple banking on color and apps

With the launch of the iPad today, many have been proclaiming the death of e-book readers like the Kindle -- as well as yet-to-be-released devices like the HP slate.

Entourage eDGe hands-on

01/08, 9:20pm

Dual screen Android e-book reader tested

Entourage put out final launch details of its eDGe dual-screen e-book reader at CES, and we managed to get hands-on time with the device this afternoon. We consider it pleasantly advanced: it's more a true tablet computer that includes e-book reading than a pure reader. It uses Android 1.6 and still supports browsing, a front camera and other features even as it handles text. Spokespeople at CES tell us that it should receive an upgrade to Android 2.1 around April and get the benefits of the newer OS as a result.

The device promises a very large 8.5- by 11-inch display, 3G, Wi-Fi and software that doesn't normally find its way into e-book devices. We had the opportunity to try the QUE this evening and have our own early opinion.
