I got my first chance to check out the Entourage Pocket Edge eBook reader at CES last week. Like the original Edge, the Pocket version is too large to actually fit in a pocket and features two screens: an E Ink display and a full color LCD screen. But the Pocket Edge is smaller, with a 6 inch E Ink display and 7 inch LCD.

The E Ink display features a Wacom digitizer, allowing you to take notes on the device and save notes and images for viewing on the color LCD display.

The eReader runs on Google Android, and you can surf the web, listen to music, or run third party Android apps.

When you’re using both screens, you should get about 4 to 6 hours of run time, but you can also turn off the LCD display altogether and only use the E Ink screen for up to 11 hours of reading.

The Pocket Edge is available from Amazon for $328.

  1. It’s an interesting product, without question, specially now that I see you can switch eink and LCD to either side. Still, I can’t help but ask myself, who is it for ?
