enTourage Systems™ Named as CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Award Honoree

enTourage Systems, Inc. today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for the enTourage eDGe™. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 36 product categories.

The enTourage eDGe, a multi-functional interactive dualbook, is the first-ever device to combine an e-reader, notepad, netbook, audio/video recorder and player into one. It allows users to read e-books, surf the Web, write notes, send emails or IMs, listen to music, record/watch videos, record audio content and convert text to speech, on a comprehensive platform. It is comprised of two screens, an e-paper and LCD screen for easy multitasking and backs up all documents to enTourage Systems’ servers. The device folds a full 360 degrees and can orient its displays horizontally or vertically to view as a book, laptop or only one screen.

enTourage Systems is building its own e-book store with access to more than one million free public domain books digitized by Google, over 200,000 trade books and major newspapers, magazines and periodicals, with text books coming shortly. With the enTourage eDGe, users experience a controlled eco-system, from enTourage Systems’ unique e-book store, to device sharing and document back-up – keeping the user environment complete and safe.

“We set out to develop a product that would revolutionize consumer electronics, changing the way we work, live and play, and we’re delighted the CEA awarded us with this great honor,” said Asghar Mostafa, president and CEO of enTourage Systems, Inc. “It’s thrilling to be recognized in front of a distinguished tech-focused audience, and we’re looking forward to showcasing the product at CES.”

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. It is sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the voice of industrial design, committed to advancing the profession through education, information, community and advocacy.

enTourage Systems’ enTourage eDGe will be displayed at the 2010 International CES, which runs January 7-10, 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada in the e-book TechZone, Central Hall, booth # 12140. The Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase will feature honorees by product category in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center and will also be featured at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES on Tuesday, January 5.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
  • Aesthetic and design qualities, using photos provided
  • The product’s intended use/function and user value
  • Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
  • How the design and innovation of the product compares to other products in the marketplace
