Wired posted a glowing writeup of the enTourage eDGe, the dual-screen eReader that begins shipping next week, packet with useful information, including the fact that the oddly capitalized “DG” in the product’s name stands for “digital generation.” It’s like Debbie Gibson’s all-but-forgotten “Electric Youth.”
More than anything else, Wired is excited by the interaction between the two screens: “You can drag a grayscale image from the E-Ink screen and view it in full color on the LCD one, or attach video (on the right screen) to a passage from an e-book (on the left screen),” writes Gadget Lab’s Miran Pavic.
And here is the link to enTourage’s new eBook store, as if we need another one of those. It’s got all the usual stuff, including books from Google.
Wired also reports that pre-orders received by 1/12 will start shipping like today, and later orders will ship “in March.”
