Entourage eDGe early preorders shipping now; everyone else can wait until March

While the headline claim is of up to 16hrs reading, that's if you're using the power-frugal E Ink panel.  Using both displays – E Ink and LCD touchscreen – simultaneously, or erring on the side of the LCD, will see up to 6hrs of runtime.  Still, given the way Entourage expect people to use the eDGe, opening webpages and ebooks from the color screen on the E Ink panel, and dragging monochrome images from the E Ink across to see them in color, that mixed usage seems most likely.  The eDGe is available to order now, priced at $499.
