Plastic Logic is to launch its e-reader at CES in January, promising a feather-light device with the largest screen in the industry.
The wireless-enabled QUE proReader is aimed firmly at the business user, displaying newspapers, books and periodicals and supporting document formats such as PDF, Word, PowerPoint and Excel.
“The QUE brand stands for a premium reading experience,” said Richard Archuleta, CEO of Plastic Logic. “The QUE proReader enhances business performance and gives you a competitive edge. More than an eReader, QUE means business.”
QUE measures 8.5 x 11 inches and is less than a third of an inch thick. The company reckons it has the largest touchscreen in the industry. It uses E Ink, and can run for days on a single charge, says Plastic Logic.
QUE users will be able to connect to content and download wirelessly via Wifi and AT&T’s 3G network. The QUE store is run in conjunction with Barnes & Noble, and Plastic Logic reckons it will offer the most significant collection of business reading available on any eReader.
The company plans to release full details, including price, at CES.
