Magnetic Kinetic

Is this the Kindle Killer?

Posted on: February 13, 2009

Personal Landscape ReaderThe Plastic Logic Reader may very well be this next Kindle Killer, but we will have to wait at least a year before that is proven. And even at that point who knows what Amazon will do with their widely accepted Kindle. But will products like the Plastic Logic Reader and the Kindle change the way we read newspapers, books, and magazines? I for one still like the tactical feel of reading a magazine or newspaper. However with products like this becoming lighter, thinner, and more natural in form factor. The real benefactor will be having a plethora of reading choices at your finger tips without the added weight of carrying such articles. The Plastic Logic Reader uses a flexible plastic substrate instead of silicone glass that is typically used for active matrix displays. This makes the display more rugged, lighter and thinner. I really am infatuated with simplicity and minimalism, but I feel this product is a bit to similar to the Kindle in terms of aesthetics. I hope they revamp the design to differientiate it from the Kindle.
