If you are taken aback by the title, well that’s how it stands right now. And unfortunately, there isn’t much info that can shed more light on it. All that is known is that Verizon has lined up two devices that can be identified as ‘e-readers’ for a possible September launch. But the thing that adds a touch of weirdness to it is that the e-readers have been named ‘Entourage.’ This when there is already a e-reader and tablet combo sort of thing in the form of Entourage Edge.
It might be that the Verizon ‘Entourage‘ has nothing to do with the Entourage Edge that we know of except of course the name though it might also be possible Verizon has struck up some sort of a deal with the makers of the Entourage Edge to come up with the e-readers.Complete details are lacking and the only thing that’s known right now is that the two e-readers might be in the 7 and 10 inch screen size category.
Verizon already is tipped to be in the process of making a 10.1 inch tablet device that’s slated for a late 2010 launch. It is also being seen as the carrier of choice for the upcoming LCD e-reader from Sharp.
More on this is awaited and will make its way here as and when they become available. So stay tuned.
