They will also be releasing a couple of Android tablets.

I've read a review or two and both people balked at the high glare of the two screens.

Yeah, but I personally like the high gloss screens for computer work....not for reading though. And what impressed me most was the speed of that tablet. Makes my eDGe look like a Ford Pinto in a race with a Shelby Cobra.
And I also thought the onscreen keyboard on the second screen looked great. I know that some here have asked to have that implemented on the ereader side of the eDGe. It would be interesting to try one and see how it works.

Sadly it doesn't seems to have active digitizer.

I saw the news from Acer yesterday too. At first I though it might be a good replacement for some high-end e-reader + laptop, until I found that this thing weighs more than twice that of the eDGe (which itself is not slight).

Not to mention the battery life. It think I read somewhere that the battery last about 3 h.
