So the early word is that, finally, we may have a Kindle killer on our hands, and it’s from a little known outfit called Plastic Logic.
The Que, as it’s called, will see the light of day for the first time ever at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (booth 11840, in case you want to know exactly where to go) on January 7th.
What’s interesting about the Que is that it’s less than a third of an inch thick, yet is WiFi enabled and can handle PDFs, Word documents, and Excel documents. Plus, the battery life, according to reports, will be measurable in days, as opposed to hours.
The early reports that call this a Kindle killer have one significant hurdle in front of them–namely, answering questions about the price of the device. The Kindle runs $279, and Sony’s model runs $199…but how much does the Que sell for? No one knows yet, and we likely won’t know until we can hit booth 11840 for ourselves.
