Review on Kindle, 6" E Ink Display, Wi-Fi

An eBook reader that boasts of both an LCD screen and e-ink display should be one interesting device, right? After all, as the eBook reader market gets more crowded, it's difficult to stand out and get noticed; and especially not when that market already has an Amazon Kindle as the undisputed leader in technology, sales, and popularity.

So what's a company that's raring to get a share of the pie to do? Simple. Come up with a device that's got more than what the current crop has to offer. If the typical eBook reader uses e-ink technology, add an LCD screen there too. And even if the handheld eBook reader is primarily used for reading on the go, why not throw in internet browsing as well? With added functionality in mind, here are the devices that they've come up with so far.

Spring Design Alex

Spring Design first introduced Alex to the public in October of 2009, although it has formally made an appearance in this year's CES (January 2010). The upper part of the device is made up of a 6-inch e-ink display that would be used mainly as the reading screen. On the bottom portion is a 3.5-inch LCD screen, running on Google's Android, and highly-usable for web browsing activities or watching video files. Its add-ons include Mini USB port, a 2.5mm headphone jack, MicroSD card slot, and a one-of-a-kind Duet Navigator feature that allows the user to toggle content downloaded on the LCD to be viewed on the e-ink screen.

Entourage Edge

The Entourage Edge is another twin-screen eBook reader to hit the market of late. Unlike the Alex that has opted for a smaller LCD display, the Entourage Edge seems to put as much emphasis on its internet browsing functionality and other capabilities as it does on the eBook reading aspect. This is because with its clamshell design, the device sports a 9.7-inch e-ink display with 16 shades of gray on the left, and a 10.1-inch LCD screen on the right. The e-ink side automatically opens ePub and PDF files.
