Yesterday we brought you news of Plastic Logic's partnership with Barnes & Noble to bring content to their upcoming E-Reader. This new reader should launch in early 2010, and will have full access to the B&N eBookstore. At 8.5 x 11, Plastic Logic's E-Reader clocks in at slightly larger than the Kindle.

Now we've got more good news for those of you looking forward to another Kindle-killer. Plastic Logic has signed an agreement with ATT. The mega-carrier will provide a 3G network for the E-Reader, which is also WiFi enabled.

We still don't know whether or not Plastic Logic customers will have to pay a monthly fee for their connection. Kindle uses the Sprint network for book downloads, but because the service is limited to E-Book purchases no additional charge is required. Things will probably differ for the PL device, as it presumably has a browser of some sort. If it doesn't, I'm at a loss to explain why the gadget has WiFi.
