Sure, the Pocket eDGe dual screen eBook reader has been available for purchase since the start of the month, but the company finally got around to officially introducing the device this week.
The Pocket eDGe is basically a smaller version of the enTourage eDGe dual-display doohickey the company introduced earlier this year. It’s just smaller. But like its bigger sibling, the Pocket eDGe has an E Ink display for reading eBooks as well as a full color LCD display. There’s a Wacom digitizer under the E Ink screen, allowing you to take notes, while the LCD has a resistive touch panel.
Oh yeah, the Pocket eDGe also runs Google Android, allowing you to run third party apps. The device has speakers, a mic, and camera, allowing you to snap photos or record or listen to audio. There’s also a USB video adapter for projecting presentations on an external display.
The E Ink screen is 6 inches, while the LCD display is 7 inches. The whole thing weighs in at 1.35 pounds, making it a little lighter than a Apple iPad.
The Pocket eDGe is priced at $400. You can find more specs at the company’s web site.
