Plastic Logic's Que proReader is still coming. We've been waiting to see it since they announced they would be the official Barnes & Noble reader back in October last year. That was quickly followed by B&N's release of the Nook and confusion about what "official" meant.
Now Plastic Logic says the Que will begin shipping in mid-April and will be available in bookstores like B&N later in the year. The Que bookstore is powered by Barnes & Noble.
The Que is one of the new, larger format eReaders in the 8 1/2 x 11 inch size range, making it suitable for display of magazine and newspaper content with some amount of layout. "Today, Plastic Logic is announcing new content partnerships with some of the leading business, news and sports publishers and publications, including news publications from the Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, the San Jose Mercury News, the Contra Costa Times, the Oakland Tribune, the Huffington Post and The Sporting News Today, along with magazines from Barron’s, Fast Company and Forbes." according to Plastic Logic's press release. What we haven't seen yet, however, is what these magazines might look like on the device. Where is design going?
