But those are just off the top of my head...
The data in the first post came from 3 sources for the product that was going to be aired on HSN. I've been to their site but there site doesn't have much info on the HSN product. I didn't hear about Verizon Pocket edge version. Nor it this mentioned on HSN on the air or on their site.

There is the heavy version and this 1.3lbs. Well now we all know what version HSN is peddling to the public. But frankly Android OS 1.6 for this price is not a good deal.

Double-sided is a recipe for broken displays. That thing had better have thick bezels.

Personally, I don't like the idea of a device with either side-by-side displays or a double-sided display. I prefer dedicated devices, because of the compromises a dual purpose device has to make.

What I would like to see is a case that can hold a Kindle Fire on one side & a Kindle 3 on the other since they look about the same size.

there is an entourage section in the Android forum if you want more info. They sell for 99 - 130 on woot when they have them.

The screens can be turned over as I remember so the ereader is on the other side.

The company is out of business so no updates other what you can access from this forum and possibly other forums.

Nice units if you have a reason to want the two screen system.

Seems the old story of "pay for two, get one".

Agreed. I wouldn't buy a product that has back-to-back screens like that.
