The Next “Tablet PC” ?

Let’s see.

  • Full 8.5×11″ readable? Yes.
  • Touchscreen? Yes.
  • Less than 1 pound? Definitely!
  • Note taking capability? Looks like yes.

Unfortunately I’ll have to wait until next year to get it. This device from Plastic Logic may not have a name yet, but lots of people are very interested already.

If anyone still remembers is lovely NEC   VersaPro VY11F/GL-R (11mm thick, 1.8 lbs), this lovely e-ink device looks like the spiritual successor. With an expectation of WiFi, touchscreen, and USB connectivity, this could be a very versatle device indeed. It felt far less than 1 lb and around 0.25 inch thick. Wow. Anticipated availablity early next year.
