Entourage Edge review roundup

March 14, 2010 at 4:58 pm


Entourage EdgeThe Entourage Edge is an interesting device that maybe points to a new form-factor we’ll start to see more of going forward. The $499 Edge combines two displays, one with a 9.7-inch e-ink screen and the other with a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) colour LCD. It uses the Android operating system and comes with a SD card slot, SIM slot, two USB ports, Wi-Fi (b/g) and costs $499.

A number of sites have reviewed the Entourage Edge recently and the general consensus seems to be that it gets a lot of things right, but it is still let down by its awkward design, heavy chassis and sluggish processor. Check out snippets from some recent reviews after the cut.

Cnet: “The Entourage Edge successfully answers the call for an e-book reader designed for textbooks and academics, but casual readers will find the device awkward to handle and complicated to operate.”

Engadget: “Yes, the Edge is a combination e-reader and a Android tablet — it just doesn’t quite work well as either. For $499 there are just too many issues with it, including its chunky body, skimpy e-book selection, frustrating touchscreen, poor battery life and lack of Android apps.”

Laptop Mag: “The Entourage Edge is an innovative product, and in practice the eReader/tablet combination works better than we expected. We like the flexibility and expandability of Android coupled with a large, touch-enabled eReader screen. However, it may be best to hold off until the initial spate of updates are complete and the app store is ready.”

Wired: “Sluggish. Poor touchscreen performance. No 3G connectivity. Weak battery life. Smaller selection of online books in the bookstore compared to Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble.com.”

    The only thing I do not quite like was the scratch-resistant shield. It is difficult to get all the bubbles, but I am sure that with more patience than I, the bubbles can be easily removed.

    I fully expect my elementary age daughter to be using an eDGe in school in the near future. Short battery life? She can plug in. 3lbs? She can manage to carry her fat cat around so she’ll be fine with her eDGe. Bulky? No paper based Algebra, World Cultures, Biology, German, or Health books. All on her eDGe. She doesn’t need 3g access. Her school will have wifi. Almost forgot…I predict she’ll be able to phone home…from her eDGe. The revolution has arrived and it’s strange how few feel the breaths.

    I found that the best way to learn how to use snapchat nudes efficiently for
    affiliate marketing is by using a program called Snappychat.
    re willing, the results will absolutely blow you away.
    It helps you see if she’s the type of person YOU really want to
    be with.

Got something to say?
