Plastic Logic E-book Reader

The device has landed at D7, and it’s got a few new features cooked up — most notably, built-in 3G data. There’s no specifics on what carriers or bands, but besides that WiFi connectivity, you’ll be able to go totally nuts out in the real world. Additionally, it looks like the company has seriously tweaked the UI, now providing a simple and clear interface for getting around your documents, and a page-turning gesture.

Introduce a new super amazing Plastic Logic e-book reader… Now with 3G.

The device has landed at D7, and it’s got a few new features cooked up — most notably, built-in 3G data. There’s no specifics on what carriers or bands, but besides that WiFi connectivity, you’ll be able to go totally nuts out in the real world. Additionally, it looks like the company has seriously tweaked the UI, now providing a simple and clear interface for getting around your documents, and a page-turning gesture.

The slate is definitely lust-worthy, but it’s  noted a fairly slow screen refresh, which is kind of a downer — along with that fairly distant 2010 launch date.

Plastic Logic E-book Reader also made an appearance on Fox Business News today, and the video is embedded after the break
