The enTourage eDGe, with both e-reader and tablet netbook capabilities, can be equipped with SDI Government Solutions’ e-learning solutions to increase training mobility and eliminate the need for duplicate devices in the field.
Barbara Reeder, Division President of SDI Government Solutions, said, “We are excited by this government reseller partnership with enTourage Systems. It has the potential to take military e-learning to a whole new level. When loaded with SDI’s computer-based training modules and interactive electronic technical manuals, the enTourage eDGe easily becomes one of the most effective mobile training devices to date.”
President and CEO of enTourage Systems, Inc. Asghar Mostafa agreed with Reeder’s remarks, adding, “This partnership between enTourage Systems and SDI Government Solutions will help better educate troops overseas by blending innovative technologies with state-of-the-art training and learning content. This combination will allow the military to further engage material that will aid them in their endeavors.”
The durable enTourage eDGe features a dual-screen design with an e-reader on one side and a touchscreen tablet netbook running the Google® Android® system on the other. The glare-free e-reader uses e-Ink® technology that allows for reading and note taking even in bright light. The fully functional tablet netbook allows users to browse the web using WiFi®, play back multimedia and download other Android®-compatible applications. USB and SD card slots allow users to download information even when using the enTourage eDGe offline.
The device plays a large variety of video formats. It also supports pushed and pulled content and easily displays interactive technical manuals on its e-reader screen. An interactive maintenance checklist developed by SDI Government Solutions can be easily accessed and updated by users with the enTourage eDGe’s touchscreen.
The two companies will make their first joint public appearance at the FOSE 2010 Conference in Washington, DC on March 23-25.
