Ok, some facts.
The technology behind this is from Plastic Logic.
Plastic Logic got all out there and the drooling when it presented its first reader (which was not available for the public) more than 1 year ago. I have waited ever since to buy an ebook reader, knowing full well what I wanted: large screen, possibility to add my own pdf, e-ink.
Essentially I think this product is a really bad. The screen is too small. It will fit novels, but if you aim to use it to read real A4 pdf you are in no luck.
But Plastic Logic has now explained that it will come up with a new product:
Que ( http://www.quereader.com/
for the business market. The press release says:
"Extra thin, lightweight and wireless-enabled, QUE is the size of an 8.5 x 11 inch pad of
paper, less than a 1/3 inch thick, and weighs less than many periodicals. The innovative
QUE proReader features the largest touchscreen in the industry, an intuitive touch
screen user interface, and provides access to a file cabinet’s worth of documents, plus
your favorite—and most necessary—publications. "
This is much more similar to the product they presented two years ago. This is what I will buy, not this silly nook-toy.
I have waited 2 years, I can wait an extra month.
