All This And Less

,

Engadget on the $499 Android-powered “Edge” tablet:

Yes, the Edge is a combination e-reader and a Android tablet — it just doesn’t quite work well as either. For $499 there are just too many issues with it, including its chunky body, skimpy e-book selection, frustrating touchscreen, poor battery life and lack of Android apps.

I have little doubt there is a market out there for people who still hate Apple so much they’ll drop $499 on an utterly inferior product, but I also don’t think it’s a big enough market to run a company on.
