Despite our rumor-based hopes, Kindle DX turned out to be just a big Kindle 2, giving Plastic Logic plenty of room to maneuver to the top of the big e-readers list. More details have surfaced about this product, and it’s plenty cool.
The device will also feature 3G broadband connectivity, and built-in Wi-Fi when it ships–along with a faster e-ink screen. It will even be supported by an online book store, which, mixed with the wireless connectivity, sounds like Plastic is building a bit of an ecosystem for the e-reader. Overall, the hardware looks good, and the launch date is set for January 2010. If the price is right it could steal the DX’s crown. Even if it turns out to be expensive, it’s most definitely an indicator of the form and function of future e-readers.
