Entourage Pocket Edge Now Ridiculously Cheap on Amazon

Entourage’s second, smaller dual book is selling for $199 on Amazon right now. That’s literally half the original retail price.

But should you get it? That’s another matter.

This isn’t your normal eReader. It has 2 screens, a 7″ LCD and a 6″ E-ink. The LCD screen has a resistive touchscreen and the E-ink screen has a Wacom sensor. There’s a webcam above the E-ink screen, and 2 speakers and a mike in the spine. There’s a microSD card slot and a USB Host port.

Both the hardware design and the software features were very carefully chosen so the Edge would work well as a digital textbook platform. It might also interest anyone who needs to take a lot of notes, collate them, then attach and organize files.

I’ve had my hands on the larger version, and I think it’s the best textbook platform short of a laptop or the iPad. And at $200, it’s almost cheap enough to risk the wasting the money.
