Entourage Edge is a tablet computer tied up with an e-book reader with an intention to give you best of both worlds. The cost of this device is $499 and there are options for five different colors to choose from. Just like the Amazon Kindle, it comes with four gigs of internal memory. Comparing both the Kindle and Edge we think the latter clearly is the winner. Starting with the dimensions, Edge is huge with a bigger display and hence gives you plenty more real estate to play on.
