That is a great review! I think the same could be said about the Entourage Edge as well.

I think the reviewer's "cons" are very interesting:

* Relatively bulky compared to similar devices
Perhaps, except what are the similar devices he's comparing to? Given that it is the only dualbook out there, comparison to just a reader or a tablet seems unfair.

* Keyboard difficult to use unless you use the stylus
Personally, I find this to be true of all touchscreen devices. The PE is no better or worse than the others I've tried.

* eInk touchscreen much less responsive than the LCD; the stylus is a must
This is true. But is eInk ever as responsive as LCD?

* High price
I got mine for $325--that's less than what a tablet and an ereader separately would have cost.

Perhaps I just don't like the fact that he said the PE is good for "parents and grandparents!" Guess that makes all of us who aren't Apple fanboys (or fangirls) old fogeys...

Interesting indeed...
Price?
I'm not even going to mention the going rate of the 'cool' (his words) iPad : $499-$829. Not to sound too rude, but obviously cost wasn't a factor when he purchased his product ... or is it that he is just way too cool?
