Plastic Logic and Barnes & Noble to Debut First E-reader for Business Professionals
Plastic Logic and Barnes & Noble have announced a distribution agreement involving the 2010 debut of Plastic Logic's e-book reading device, the QUE proReader. The device is touted by Plastic Logic as "the first e-reader designed to support the lifestyle of modern business professionals." It also is unique for its shatterproof, plastic display with the largest touchscreen available.
An earlier partnership between the two companies had arranged for Barnes & Noble to support QUE's online store. Under the new agreement, QUE will be sold in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide, displayed near the retailer's own new device, the Nook e-reader, as well as via BN.com.
The QUE proReader is scheduled for an official launch Jan. 7, 2010 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
