Russian state sinks $700m into flexible tech co Plastic Logic
Remember the Plastic Logic Que proReader? Annouced at CES2010, the Kindle-like ereader was set for a launch in the first half of 2009, but failed to launch.
Now the company could be back in business, after an unlikely funding saviour in the shape of state-owned Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (Rusnano).
Rusano is set to front up a $700 million investment in the parent company, US-based Plastic Logic Inc, a move which could well see Que proReader siblings hitting our shelves soon.
The original Que measured 8.5×11 inches, was 1/3 inches thick and had a 10.7-inch shatterproof touchscreen.
