It does not appeal to me (but of course I would be curious to hear a tipstir review)

it's actually 200 dollars more than the Coby. Also would cost more than buying both a Kindle wifi plus a Nook Color. So it better work pretty good for that price.

Yes I did catch that typo. I would have to return the Coby KYROS and Maylong M-150 (still hasn't even been shipped by UPS) To get this one. Otherwise I'll have a stock pile of tablets.

KYROS so far hasn't given me any typos when I type like I did with both Pandigital Novel / Rooted Tablet Hybrid did. But this one can't compare as the cost of this one is much more and as dual screen and more features.

Hmmm, I think I would just duct tape a K3 and a Nook Color together instead. (Actually think it would look better than that, as well...)

Actually though, someone clever could make a cover, on one side the K3 fits, on the other the Nook Color

Actually, that sounds like a good idea.

The Entourage Edge has been out for ages; is this a new model, or simply some new distributor selling it?

This think just looks weird. This is not a portable device & def not for a casual reader. I remember watching a YouTube vid about it being geared toward business. Well you're better off with a net book.

When I look at this I want the the two screens REVERSED. It would make me crazy to read on the left side all the time.

Also, that weight is a killer.

The point of having the tablet it to have it thin, weigh less, look vivid even in the bright sun light and in the dark. The above is more like netbook, e-reader and tablet with the added weight.

I think, if it is like the full sized enTourage Edge, the panels will fold all the way back so the panels are back to back. I know seems weird to leave one panel exposed and vulnerable like that but we'll see. It would be better if the panel could rotate so that the unused panel was facing the back of the front facing panel.

Personally, I like the full sized version and find this smaller version too clunky looking, especially the thick spacing between the panels down the middle where the hinge lives.

you know...I use OneNote, a LOT, but have used Evernote before and wonder how well it will run on this device. I know Evernote does run on Android just not which Android versions.

What a silly idea
Now if you use gaffer's tape you would have a winner.
Far more color options, glow in the dark tape, and no residue when you decide to peel off the old and match what you are wearing.

You can actually fold the Edge to read just on one screen, or rotate (reverse) the screens anytime, so the e-ink side is on the right.
