The Entourage Edge is the first of a new family of netbook/e-reader hybrid products. Like the Microsoft Courier, the Edge is built with dual touchscreens. Unlike the Courier, the Edge has one dedicated E-Reader screen/notepad, and one LCD touchscreen side that acts like a netbook. Early images of the Edge made it out to be a bulky, awkward piece of ridiculous.

However, a new video from Netbook News shows a mock-up of what the production Edge will look like. Closed, it is indistinguishable from a 10" ultraportable laptop. The bulky, rectangular thing we saw in the previous video was just a prototype.
The Edge itself is clearly very close to done. The prototype seemed to function well. Both screens were highly responsive and the notepad looks outstanding. We saw from the production mock-up that the final version will have two USB slots, one micro-USB slot, a SIM card slot, and an SD card slot.

When the Edge launches, you'll be able to grab a data plan and use this thing as your VOIP phone. Just clip on an earpiece and go. You can even do video conference calls with the front-mounted webcam. It may be a bit large, but the cost of a satchel is well worth the benefit of being novel.
