Can you upload the app you tried? I'll see what I can find out why it's not working. If you decide to upload the app do it in development thread for 2.2 NEW. Thanks.

P.S. Sorry, I didn't realize it might be paid app. Don't post, but if you're willing to send me by pm I'll try to check what's going on. I promise to delete it regardless of the outcome.

P.P.S. OK, I believe I know what's going on:
these apps don't convert text to speech themselves, they send your text to a server, it converts it to speech and sends back as voice. To do that your device - in this case eDGe - has to have a cell connection. That's why they work with cell phones.
I read that PE with Dingo supports 3G modems - that's the possible route for you.
