Entourage Systems Partners to Bring Android Powered “DualBook” To Colleges and Schools

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDzMHYCIDFE[/youtube] In a press release put out today, Entourage systems, creator of the world’s first Android powered “dual book,” announced that they have partnered with The Douglas Stewart Company to bring the “dual book” to colleges and schools.  It seems that both Entourage Systems and The Douglas Stewart Company want to integrate the “dualbook” with educational media when selling it to educational institutions. Seems like a good idea.

Besides running Android, the interesting thing about this device is that it is both a netbook and e-reader in one.  On one side of the device you have an e-paper read out, capable of displaying electronic ink files, and on the other side, you have a fully functional Android tablet. How well it runs is yet to be seen.

Overall, the “dualbook” seems like an interesting concept, which has quite a bit of promise.  I really hope it succeeds..  Take a look at the video and let us know what you think! Go Android!

    I can get over how clunky and downright unattractive it is. Sure, it's conceptually interesting. But it looks like it was designed by someone who never got over living in the year 1985. I'd love to see this same idea brought to the fore with better execution.

      never knew that attractiveness was a specification. It does the job well. What more do you want a Shelby version??
