Plastic Logic QUE coming to Barnes & Noble stores
Plastic Logic and Barnes & Noble announced a partnership on Tuesday that will see Plastic Logic's QUE proReader e-book reader sold at the latter's stores and on its website. As part of the deal, the QUE proReader will be displayed near Barnes & Noble's own nook e-book reader, on its own free-standing display. Compared to the nook, the QUE is more business-oriented.
The announcement marks the second such partnership between the two, as they announced a partnership earlier this year that had Barnes & Noble build the online store for QUE.
The QUE proReader distinguishes itself from other readers by offering a large 8.5x11-inch plastic display and its 1/3-inch thickness. Supported files include PDF, Word, PowerPoint and Excel, among others. The QUE will be unveiled at CES on January 7th along with its full pricing, specs and release information.
