eDGe
Price: $490

Can an all-in-one eReader and netbook find a market in 2010?

McLean Va.-based enTourage hopes so. The company is rolling out a two screen device, called the eDGe, that has an eReader on one screen and a netbook computer on the other. It will feature both access to e-book content and supports most notebook computing functions, including Web access. The eDGe is a fascinating attempt to marry reading with the live Internet.

And while it is impossible to predict readers' tolerance for Web distraction as they plow through Proust, the eDGe does show how innovative eReaders have become in just a few months.

The Kindle will have its hands full in 2010.
