The Plastic Logic “QUE”



With all the Kindle 2.0 Hype, one wonders why competitors Plastic Logic didn’t hold off making a major announcement today. Plastic Logic, the California-based company says it has raised over $200 million for the development of its own e-Reader. It sits at 8.5 x 11 inches, and it’s large!

Larger than both the Kindle and Sony’s Reader, the company is taking aim at publishers who don’t want to “shrink” their content so it will fit on smaller readers. Plastic Logic had a list of content providers for its device, which is set to release commercially early next year

From the QUE Website:

Looks like paper, reads like paper
