Well gang, Microsoft's Courier has been beaten to the punch by enTourage. They've just released the enTourage eDGe (via Gizmodo), a dual-screen E-Reader/Android tablet. Sure, it doesn't have the style, the incredible UI design, or the outstanding potential for organizational tasks that Microsoft's Courier does. But right now, it has one massive advantage over Redmond's slumbering giant; it exists.

The eDGe is not the sexiest gadget ever built. On the outside, it looks pretty much exactly like a netbook. Unfolding it reveals two screens. One, a 9.7" E-Ink screen that can read ePub and PDF files. The other, a 10.1" color LCD touchscreen that houses an Android tablet. The eDGe has WiFi, optional 3G, Bluetooth, and the ability to record video and audio.

Altogether, it sounds like a pretty sweet gadget. At $500, it's set quite a bit above the rest of the reader market, but it has the increased functionality to justify it. I'm still going to hold out hope for the Courier but, if you can get over the silly name, the eDGe looks like a nifty tool.
