Plastic Logic demonstrates flexible ereader

Plastic Logic has demonstrated a new ereader made of lightweight flexible plastics, giving us a glimpse at the next generation of these portable devices. The ereader, which is expected to go on the market in early 2009, is wireless and handles books, Word, PowerPoint, Excel and PDF documents and can be set up for newspaper subscriptions. It’s much lighter and thinner than the current generation Sony Reader and Kindle and features a larger 8.5 in x 11 in display, based on technologies developed by Cambridge University.
