Mountain View, Calif. - Plastic Logic, which will unveil
one of the first plastic e-readers at International CES, said it has reached
agreements with several technical publishers to offer books and magazine on its
Que e-reader.

The QuePlastic Logic
bills its Que, which will be sold in Barnes & Noble stores starting early
next year, as a professional or "proReader" because it handles documents as
well as e-books and its large screen is suited to periodicals - the device
measures 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall.

The company
reached agreements with Popular Science (the Bonnier Corporation),
International Data Group (IDG) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Technology
Review.

Que customers
will be able to receive Popular Science, PC World, Macworld, CIO, Network
World, Computerworld and Technology Review directly from the Que store. Plastic
Logic already has partnerships with Financial Times, USA Today, Detroit Free
Press and Detroit News.

The Que offers
3G wireless access. It measures about a third of an inch thick and weighs less
than many periodicals.  Pricing and other
details will be announced at CES, said Plastic Logic.
