The Plastic Logic e-Reader promises to transform how we read books and documents on the go. This legal size, ultra thin and light model mimics the feel of holding paper, including the same flexibility - something laptops, computers and other e-readers don’t offer. As such, this tactile feature will be key to this e-reader’s success when it becomes available to consumers in a year’s time.

You can read not just books, but reports, newspapers and so on as it is compatible with a wide range of document formats such as the Office programs and pdfs. Imagine been able to pack in tons of reading material into this thin wafer!

The touch screen reader provides grayscale images but the company plans to move to color. Content partnerships with publishers such as the Financial Times and USA Today have been forged, with more in the works.
