Could Plastic be the subs' flexible friend?


Following on from an earlier post (Introducing design and creativity to the web), I was pleased to read an article on the New York Times' site about Plastic Logic's new e-reader.

NYT say Plastic Logic will introduce publicly on Monday its version of an electronic newspaper reader: "a lightweight plastic screen that mimics the look — but not the feel — of a printed newspaper."

The device is larger than the Kindle, and has a black and white display, but importantly, it can display designed pages, with images and a layout - as opposed to the now familiar dreaded slab of text.

It is expected that the Plastic Logic reader will be available by the start of next year ... in America.

Page designers could be embraced by the digital revolution yet!
