enTourage eDGe Goes Quietly into the Night

by Reads (2,637)

The “world’s first dualbook” has taken its final bow, as enTourage has officially closed the eDGe store and tacitly indicated the discontinuation of the line of tablet / eReader hybrids.

enTourage Pocket eDGeWhile the Barnes & Noble NOOK has chosen to walk the line between tablet and eReader, the enTourage eDGe and Pocket eDGe completely blurred that line. With an eInk screen on one side and a resistive LCD on the other, it was sort of a Frankenstein device that met with limited appeal.

The NOOK blends tablet and eReader features while the eDGe line sewed them together and marketed it for $500. enTourage is directing eDGe and Pocket eDGe owners to the Google ebookstore to continue purchasing content for their devices.

Engadget reports that enTourage has a more traditional slate in the pipeline, which will hopefully be longer lived and more successful than the eDGe and Pocket eDGe.
