Newsweek has an article
about the demise of the print newspaper and its hopeful Phoenix-like rise from the ashes in a digital reincarnation. Several companies "will soon launch e-readers with screens the size of an 8.5-by-11-inch piece of paper—and unlike existing e-readers, which have glass screens, these next-generation machines will use flexible, plastic screens that readers won't have to worry about cracking. Richard Archuleta
is CEO of Plastic Logic, which this week is set to demo a larger, flex-screen reader that will go on sale next year."
Color eink is a few years off, according to the article, and there is no word on the price point of these larger, flexible devices.
