PC Mag: Entourage Edge Review

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2365994,00.asp

Pros
Good contrast on e-ink screen. Can take notes on the e-ink screen. Google Android 1.6 OS offers color Web browsing, voice recording, and plenty of other useful apps.
Cons
Ungainly design. Very heavy. Huge AC adapter. Plastic construction feels flimsy. Color touch screen is too dim, lacks contrast, and has narrow viewing angles. Slow boot-up. No 3G option for buying e-books over the air.
Bottom Line
With two screens, one e-ink and one color, on paper, the Entourage Edge sounds like a fantastic idea. But a high price, hefty weight, and overall cumbersome design spell doom for this hybrid device.
Wonder if they'll upgrade the eInk screen to the new Pearl display, like the new DX.
