Reader has two screens and can surf the web

EReaders have been hugely popular over the last year and were highly sought after for the holiday season. The demand was so high for some eReaders like the Nook are still sold out. A new eReader is now available for pre-order called the enTourage eDGe. The device has two screens and is billed as the world's first dual-book combining the functions of an eReader, netbook, notepad, and an audio/video reader. The device is able to surf the web, read eBooks, watch video and listen to music.

Books can be transferred to the reader via SD cards or flash drives and it has a mini-USB port for direct transfers from PC or Mac computers. The eDGe has a 9.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1200 x 825 on the eReader side of the machine. The color screen side of the device is 10.11-inches and has a resolution of 1024 x 600.

The reader has integrated Wi-Fi and in the future, the device will support EVDO or HSDPA mobile modems. The device can be used in portrait or landscape modes and it weighs under three pounds. Dimensions of the device are 8.25" x 10.75" x 1" and it has 3GB of integrated storage. The internal battery is replaceable and promises 16 hours of runtime per charge.

The reader will come in blue, white, black, and red colors and can be pre-ordered now for $490. Any color other than blue costs an extra $40. The reader is set to ship in February 2010.
