eBook platform and device maker Plastic Logic rides the Amazon Kindle 2 announcement with some news of their own.
Plastic Logic, which unveiled their thin eBook device last October announces content partners.
Today Plastic Logic announced content deals with Ingram Digital (ebooks), LibreDigital (enewspapers), Zinio (emagazines) and a direct relationship with business newspaper, the Financial Times, and the nation’s top selling newspaper, USA TODAY. The Plastic Logic Reader is an electronic reader that features a large, thin, lightweight and robust form factor that is about the size of an 8.5 x 11-in. pad of paper and weighs less than many print magazines. The Plastic Logic reader device specifications are still rather vague at this point.
Plastic Logic plans to make its Reader available in trials and pilots with partners and key customers during the second half of 2009, followed by widespread commercial availability in 2010. Via the Plastic Logic site.

Amazon has with the Kindle a rather serious head start. If Amazon can decrease the price to under $200 and keep up the Kindle supply than it will be hard to beat.
