Verizon “Entourage” ereader duo due September

Verizon “Entourage” ereader duo due September

Here's an odd one.  Verizon are already tipped to be offering at least one 10.1-inch tablet later in 2010, and are name-checked as the potential carrier of choice for Sharp's upcoming duo of LCD ebook readers, but according to Engadget's sources the roadmap has two devices billed as "ereaders" on the roadmap for September that are labelled as "Entourage".  That's got them speculating that the devices may be from the same Entourage that produces the dual-screen eDGe ereader.

Nintendo DS2 details leak: bigger, higher-res screens, accelerometer, late-2010 launch?

Nintendo DS2 details leak: bigger, higher-res screens, accelerometer, late-2010 launch?

Nintendo's DSi XL isn't even on US shelves yet, and already gamers are prodding developers to find out details about the next-gen handheld.  News on the Nintendo DS2 was top of the list for RPad.TV when they hit up GDC 2010, and they've managed to extract a few choice nuggets in the process.  The DS2 - the official name of which nobody would, or could, spill - will apparently keep its dual-displays, but the panels will be larger, higher-resolution and have so minimal a gap between them that titles will be able to in effect use them as a single, big screen.

Astri MyID dual-display ebook reader gets video demo; $130-$150 price predicted

Astri MyID dual-display ebook reader gets video demo; $130-$150 price predicted

Astri's MyID dual-screen ebook reader made a discrete debut at CES 2010 last month, offering the E Ink/LCD touchscreen flexibility of an Entourage eDGe only in a far smaller form-factor.  Ebook reader fanatic Nate Hoffelder grabbed some hands-on time recently with the latest MyID prototype, and his feedback is actually pretty good; navigation is straightforward and the hardware is obviously more portable than the eDGe.  It's also got the potential to be much cheaper, too.

The Entourage eDGe dual-display clamshell netbook is great, if you don't mind toting a rucksack all the time, but what if you'd prefer something a little more pocket-friendly?  Tucked away at CES 2010 was Astri's E Ink ereader, an Android-based mini-me version of the eDGe with a 5-inch Wacom touchscreen epaper panel on the left and a 4.8-inch WVGA LCD touchscreen on the right.

Hearst’s Skiff digital media service announced; 3G e-reader coming in 2010

We can't say we think much of the name, but Hearst Corporation's new Skiff electronic content distribution service will likely be seen as a lifeboat for beleaguered publishers.  Combining an "enhanced content experience" delivery service and digital store, Skiff will make its newspaper, magazine, book and other content available on various existing devices, including smartphones like the iPhone, Hearst are also planning their own ebook reader for release in 2010, based on a Marvell chipset and using Sprint's 3G EVDO Rev.A network for wireless connectivity.

Spring Design Alex gets hands-on; shows off new Marvell ARMADA 166E ebook SoC

Whether or not Barnes and Noble liked it enough to copy it, Spring Design's Alex prototype dual-display ebook reader is certainly nifty enough to capture our interest.  MaximumPC had a chance to go hands-on with the Alex, which has a 6-inch e-ink screen up top and a 3.5-inch color capacitive touchscreen underneath for control and navigation, as part of a Marvell demonstration for the company's new ARMADA 166E SoC.
