iPad Bloodbath: Que e-reader Gets Canned
The Que, an A4-sized device [“A4” should have been the processor, not size — Ed.], was shown last January at the Consumer Electronics Show, with a price tag of $649 and a label of e-reader for business users.
Few weeks later Apple announced the iPad, priced starting from $499 and 200k-something apps ready for it. Go figure.
Richard Archuleta, Plastic Logic chief executive officer, said in a statement that they canned the Que and are rethinking the whole project, to build a new generation reader, without specifications and without a certain timetable.
Well, it didn’t say exactly so, but he meant this. Good luck, folks.
