enTourage Edges Off the Stage

enTourage Systems has announced it's exiting the eBook and eBook Reader market, closing the book (sorry!) on one of the more innovative eReaders so far. Literally combining an eInk eBook Reader and a small tablet computer with a hinge, the Edge and smaller Pocket Edge Readers were hindered by higher-than-the-competition weight and prices.

Although it seemed to offer many interesting possibilities for combining reading and study, it never caught on as an e-textbook reader and was reduced to competing head-on with general purpose eReaders costing half as much.
