  • Plastic Logic Gets "Major" Russian Investment To Build Second Screen Manufacturing Facility

    Remember Plastic Logic? The company that made the interesting Que E-Reader that was previewed in 2008, debuted in 2009 and shown to the public at CES 2010? Yeah, the one that constantly delayed and ultimately canceled awhile back. Well, the company apparently isn’t dead yet. A Russian firm, Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies, just made a “major” investment in the… Read More

  • Good Night, Sweet Que

    “We recognize the market has dramatically changed, and with the product delays we have experienced, it no longer make sense for us to move forward with our first generation electronic reading product. This was a hard decision, but is the best one for our company, our investors and our customers.” Aw. I held it these very hands and proclaimed it sexy. But it was not to be. Better… Read More

  • Plastic Logic Que to ship around June 24th

    It’s sexy and expensive, like a solid gold lady, but the Que is struggling with the usual first-run production woes. At least we have a shipping date now: June 24th. It’s my favorite of the “vanilla” e-readers, but I’m beginning to wonder whether I’ll ever hold one? Read More

  • Plastic Logic pushes the Que E-Reader launch back to mid-summer

    Bad news and good news. You can probably guess the bad news if you read the headline. Plastic Logic has officially delayed the Que. You may recall that the Que was the one e-reader at CES 2010 that stood above the crowd thanks to its very thin casing and large screen. It was supposed to ship mid-April, but the company can’t meet that deadline. The new shipping timetable is mid-summer. Read More

  • Hands-on with the Plastic Logic Que

    And we have another ebook reader! This time around it’s the Que from Plastic Logic. Just because it’s not the Kindle or Nook, don’t write it off. This device, and the software it runs, might be special enough to make a mark in the ebook reader scene. Read More

  • Plastic Logic's Que e-reader: One for the businesspeople in the audience (apparently)

    Another day, another e-reader. Toady’s is the Plastic Logic Que, which is pronounced like the letter that falls between P and R. I, however, will henceforth pronounce it like the Portuguese word for “what,” and the European Portuguese pronunciation at that. (Sorta sounds like “quh.” It’s a movement!) Plastic Logic seems to be aiming it at the business… Read More

  • AT&T to power Plastic Logic's eBook reader

    This isn’t going to end well. Plastic Logic has just announced that it has partnered with AT&T on its upcoming eBook reader that’s slated to launch in 2010. Said reader will be about the size of a piece of paper and will be less than ¼ inch thick. Luckily the device will come packing Wi-Fi like the Kindle. Oh, it’ll have touchscreen, too. The PL reader features a… Read More

  • Video: Plastic Logic Prototype E-Reader

    Plastic Logic is showing off a prototype of its thin-film electronic reader at the D7 conference. The main difference between what Plastic Logic is trying to build and the Kindle is that its screen technology is much thinner, lighter and can be incorporated into more flexible form- factors. I shot the video showing what it can do. Check out the video after the jump. Read More

  • Plastic Logic's eReader re-emerges at D with an interface and 3G

    It’s been more than six months since we’ve seen hide or hair of the highly-anticipated Plastic Logic eReader, but the D conference has got it up and running, and even touchable. It’s as thin as we remember it, and the touchscreen appears to be fully functional. I was afraid from watching earlier demos that it might be limited to certain areas on the screen, but in fact… Read More

  • More info on Plastic Logic's eReader

    I was just talking in the podcast about how much I’d prefer Plastic Logic’s slick eReader as an alternative to the Kindle. Well, my post last month had little more than some announcement info and a cool video, so I thought maybe you guys would like to know more. It’s about half an inch thick, 8.5″x11″, and it supports all kinds of text and office files, as well… Read More

  • Video: Plastic Logic's awesome new eReader How pumped am I for this thing? I’m sure they have bugs, kinks, and production problems to work out, but buddy that thing is a quarter inch thick and works! It’s sexier than a Kindle for sure, and if it lets me do all the things I want to do with an e-book (we won’t speak of them here) then I’ll be… Read More

  • Plastic Logic will show off a fancy, new electronic paper device today

    She’s on the left Is electronic paper ready to hit the big time? Plastic Logic is set to unveil a version of electronic paper at Demo (a tech trade show in San Diego) today, one that the reeling newspaper industry desperately wants to succeed. The device still doesn’t have a name, nor will it have a price—we’ll have to wait until CES to find out what it costs (provided… Read More
