Will we be able to expand the Edge of the Empire characters that we have with the specializations in AoR? ie can we purchase new specializations listed in AoR with our EotE characters?
transitioning characters from EotE into AoR?

Yes. The games are 100% compatible, and a character can even easily have both Obligation from EotE and Duty from AoR. The specializations work exactly the same way with the same purchase rates.

Some of the AoR specializations even are the same ones from EotE, which means that they're considered already bought if you already bought them in EotE (no doubling up).
Well, according to George Lucas, the Empire is intended to be bad guys and the Sith to be objectively evil.
Fans proceeded to immediately disregard his bull and have fun with the Empire and make believable characters left and right, and come up with sensible rationalizations east, west, north and south.

Some of the races and specializations which first appeared in AoR Beta have since appeared in supplements for Edge.
Some of us have been complaining that there's not enough to distinguish them... Mostly, the big differences are the vehicles and badguys listed in the book. I'm certsin the fluff text and included worlds will also differ... but mechanically, it's the same core rules. There's one new skill, and it's a knowledge skill.
