McGraw Hill to deliver higher education content to the eDGe e-reader

According to a recent press release, McGraw-Hill Education has announced a strategic alliance with Entourage Systems to deliver higher education content to the dual screen eDGe e-reader. McGraw-Hill plans to make 100 of its top selling titles in business, economics, science, math, humanities, foreign languages, and social sciences available for purchase through the Entourage e-book store. As mentioned previously, the eDGe device is a hybrid e-reader with a black and white E Ink screen for reading and taking notes, and a color LCD screen for viewing images, videos, and the internet. Textbooks are better suited for this type of e-reader because color graphics and illustrations that are imperative for certain disciplines can be displayed on the LCD screen. The eDGe e-reader will launch at the CES show this week and will begin shipping next month.
