enTourage eDGe Makes Its Official Appearance at CES

entourage-edge-openThe eDGe device appeared on the tech front in Fall  2009, but it’s getting its official introduction at CES this week. The enTourage eDGe dualbook eReader is a multi-functional device that has a little bit of everything in it—tablet, netbook, media player and eReader in-one. The enTourage eDGe is a dual-screen, WiFi-enabled electronic device that merges a 9.7” (diagonal) e-paper screen with an LCD screen for ultimate interactivity. This new WiFi-enabled device has some useful features like the built-in noise-cancelling microphone, 1.3 Mega Pixel camera, a virtual keyboard, and an e-paper display that allows users to draw and take notes on.

enTourage says it is building its own e-book store with access to over 200,000 trade books and more than one million free public domain books digitized by Google. And guess what students; its e-book store also includes an abundance of higher education e-textbooks in a variety of subjects from publishers and content frequently adopted by professors for course use from Oxford University Press.

entrourage-blue_open“The enTourage eDGe is an industry-changing product, breathing new life into content by making e-books more digitally enhanced and interactive, while also offering capabilities of other leading devices in a single platform,” said Asghar Mostafa, CEO and president of enTourage Systems, Inc. “Partnering with McGraw Hill, Oxford University Press and John Wiley & Sons allows us to make the enTourage eDGe an even more powerful educational tool, creating a new-age learning experience for students.”

The enTourage eDGe is available for pre-orders now, and will be fully available in February 2010 online at www.entourageedge.com for $490. Check out the enTourage eDGe Facebook page or @enTourageeDGe Twitter handle.
