"The Entourage Edge could be the second or third Android-based e-reader to ship, depending on whether the company meets its expected February ship date, and whether the Spring Designs Alex ships in early 2010, as hoped. That leaves the Barnes & Noble Nook as the likely pioneer Android e-reader, as B&N expects to ship the device on Nov. 30.
