Plastic Logic Que

The sleek, highly anticipated Plastic Logic Que is quite the antithesis of the Entourage eDge. It’s slim, and superlightweight. It feels comfy in one hand, unlike the unwieldy feeling Kindle DX. The Que has a black plastic bezel (albeit a fingerprint-prone one), and has a capacitive touch E-Ink touch screen that supports page turn gestures, too. Where other e-readers have a glass backplane, the Que has a plastic backplane for support—hence its light weight. Plastic Logic uses Barnes & Noble’s ebook store; while you can buy anything, its interface and indeed most everything about the device is aimed squarely at business users. Due in the US in April, the 4GB Wi-Fi version will cost US$649, while the 8GB Wi-Fi and 3G capable model will cost US$799.
