We understand that a lot has happened since 2009, but if you remember the QUE e-reader that never actually shipped, this is the company that just received $700 million. Let's back up a bit, first. Plastic Logic was an up and coming company with loads of promise, and the QUE e-reader was particularly impressive. It looked unlike anything else out there at the time, and the UI was just stunning. If any new reader had a real chance to topple the Kindle and Nook, this was it. Eventually, the QUE was canceled, and Plastic Logic fell on hard times when it came to financing.

Sadly, not a single reader on the market (or planned for the market) has a color display, but with competition as heated... Read more...
Amazon may have started the craze, but nowadays it feels like anyone and everyone is dabbling in the e-reader game. With the sector still blooming, companies are seemingly erupting from left field in order to toss their own Kindle rival into the ring, and one of the most promising we've seen is being crafted courtesy of Plastic Logic. The aforesaid company has been toiling away on its own reader for years now, and with "early 2010" just around the bend, it seems the ship date that digital bookworms have been yearning for is finally within sight.Just today, Plastic Logic has both confirmed the rumored...
