Plastic Logic teases QUE e-reader for CES

updated 10:00 am EDT, Mon October 19, 2009

QUE proReader to have thin touchscreen

Plastic Logic today took the wraps off of its long in development e-book reader. Now known as the QUE proReader, the e-ink device is under a third of an inch thick but has a full 8.5-by-11-inch display that can show many documents at their full size. It also has a unique plastic touchscreen that the company claims is shatterproof and uses both Wi-Fi as well as AT&T-based 3G for downloading content from Barnes & Noble.

The amount of onboard storage isn't explained, but Plastic Logic makes it a point to support Excel, PowerPoint and Word as well as PDF. Full launch information will only appear when the reader shows at CES in early January.
