Android powered tablets and eReaders are something that there are lots of folks looking forward to out there. You might recognize the Entourage name as the company that offered up the dual screen Edge tablet earlier this year. That thing has an e-ink screen on one side and a LCD on the other. The big issue for some users was that the thing was so large and bulky.


The company has come back with another product called the Entourage Pocket Edge. The new Pocket version has the same dual screen and runs the Android OS, but it is smaller. The left side of the tablet has a 6-inch e-ink screen and the right has a 7-inch resistive touch LCD. That LCD has a resolution of 800 x 480. The smaller screens will make the device easier to handle for many users and make it more portable.

It also has WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB ports for sync and hosting. A microSD card slot allows for expansion of the 3GB of internal memory. The machine also has a mic, 2MP webcam and more. The new Pocket Edge is about half an inch think when open and an inch thick closed making it more bulky that any other readers on the market. Entourage also says that the device is not aimed at educational use for students and teachers due to the small size of the screens that make for issues looking at some documents.
