Plastic Logic notified people who ordered the QUE proReader that the device will not meet its mid-April launch date. The company claims it has postponed the first shipments of this eReader until Summer in order to fine)tune the features and enhance the overall product experience.
According to the email, the delay is due to a desire to "fine-tune the features and enhance the overall product experience." Now the good news: credit cards have not been charged leaving disgruntled hopefuls either $649 (for the 4GB WiFi model) or $799 (for the 8GB WiFi + 3G model) to spend on something else. There are certainly more e-reader choices available now than when the QUE proReader went up for pre-order on January 7th -- though not with the same sophisticated business-use approach or big 10.5-inch display... for that, you'll have to wait for Skiff to ship.
