Q: The eDGe is the first e-reader with a dual display. Or maybe the first netbook with an e-reader display… How did you come up with this design?

AM: We saw a gap in the e-reader market for a device that could combine reading with note taking, Web surfing, email, Word/PowerPoint/Excel and music and video playing and recording, which would ultimately enhance the learning process as well. My teenaged kids confirmed it as well, saying they couldn’t do much with just a dedicated e-reader. They wanted Internet connectivity, email, Facebook, games; they’re part of a very tech-savvy generation that has high expectations for gadgets.
