Though the Plastic Logic Que, an expensive, amply screened ebook reader, is still in delay purgatory, the company says that it is already working on a colour display that should be completed by the end of next year.
The Plastic Logic QUE, also known as the promising but $US650 Nook alternative, has been delayed until after mid-year. By then, will you still actually want an oversized ebook reader? For $US650, upcoming Apple and/or Android tablets are looking pretty good.
Plastic Logic is a dark horse in the eBook reader business, having shown off prototypes of a large, decent-looking capacitive touchscreen eBook reader. Today that reader gets a shiny black finish and an official name — Que. Still no price.
