My New Toy

 

Last week Woot had this enTourage Pocket eDGe on sale. It’s an ereader on one side and a computer tablet on the other running Android. It came yesterday. I started playing w it today.

My first problem is it’s running Android v. 1.6 which is out of date for most Android apps, including the Nook app and the Google reader app. I already have a question in to support about this because their documentation only mentions that they’re working on an upgrade – dated February 2010.

For now I’m excited w it. It will be great for travel once it’s set up. It’s the smaller 7″version which is easier to carry. My brother pointed out that it’s heavier than my Nook as well as having a smaller screen. I think that will be ok. I’m looking forward to experimenting w the reader.

I’ll keep you posted.

    This seems really useful. You’ll have to let me know how it works out. It makes sense that it would be heavier; it’s bigger.
