Large touch-screen electronic devices just can't get a break these days. First the iPad was delayed because of manufacturing problems and now the latest e-reader, Plastic Logic's Que proReader, has also been pushed back.

Plastic Logic says the delay is because it was working on fine-tuning some of the device's features. It did not say there were any problems, but behind the scenes, something must have not worked out as expected.

The Que will set the high-end side of the e-reader market. At $649 and $799, it is the most expensive of the Kindle, Sony Reader, and iPad mix.

Plastic Logic said that pre-orders for the Que have already filled up its initial manufacturing. It was slated to come out in the middle of April, but pre-order customers received a notice yesterday that it was going to be delayed.

No new date has been set yet, but the company says it will now be out in the summer.
