They list in the specs, additional apps -Yes via the Android market. Did they misspeak or do they know something we don't?

Interesting... They may have jumped the gun, like J&R that yanked their pre-order after just a few days.

There are a number of interesting things in the specs:
- it says Android 2.2, yet says "Adobe Flash Lite" (Android 2.2 supports full Flash 10.1)
- the last photo indicates the battery is replaceable (previous info said it wasn't replaceable)
- it says the Android Market is accessible (which I kinda doubt as bigger players haven't succeeded at this)
- it says it has a "G-Sensor" (accelerometer?)

Did anyone else notice the rotated e-ink screen? That would be useful.

I wonder whether the screen is actually rotatable, or only exists in landscape in this version.

One of the other photos shows the normal portrait mode.

These could be mockups, but if it actually works, it means we'll finally have landscape PDF reading support come November

Ok, I might be looking at the wrong pictures, but the one I see where the eink is in landscape mode appears to be the Journal, and it doesn't appear to actually be in landscape mode, but someone just wrote on it sideways. Is someone seeing something I'm not? I don't see a picture with eink text in landscape mode.

You could be right, but the pictures don't seem to be available anymore on the site at the moment...

And the space after additional apps is blank now.

I just hope that all of this focus on the little sister of the enTourage family doesn't mean that our big brother will be slower to receive patches, updates, and new functionalities.

It doesn't work like the older kids pass the hand-me-downs to the younger kids? Bummer.

All indications are that the smaller eDGe is really just a smaller clone, which means both will get the same updates.

Ebookreaderdiscounter.com This is the company that has a virtual european monopoly and turned a $500 doller product into $800 and considering it would cost $40 dollars for individual shipping they also charge shipping on top of that at double the going rate, thats a **** of a mark up and they have made the Edge uncompetitive in europe.

I suspect they are test marketing to see the response.
