Plastic Logic revealed their new electronic ink device today at DEMOfall. The size is the same as 8.5 x 11-inch paper and is about as thick as pad of paper. It’s said to be lighter than many business periodicals.

“Research confirms professionals read much more business content than recreational content. They require access to all formats of digital content at their fingertips, visit this site and want a large readable screen, medstore ” said Plastic Logic CEO Richard Archuleta.

The reader supports several document formats:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Adobe PDFs

Along with the file formats above there is support for a native format for newspapers, periodicals and books. The user interface is gesture-based, which is the simplest way to reduce the button clutter of so many other devices on the market. Users can connect to their information either wired or wirelessly and store thousands of documents on the device. The display utilizes E Ink technology for great readability and features low power consumption and long battery life. The ship date for the reader is set at the first half of 2009.

  1. Doubtfull whether this will hit. Too device orientated, not enough user orientated.
    Display technique seems very well worked out.
