Technology Review reports that Cambridge University is set to mass-produce an e-reader (above with Amazon’s Kindle) based on its Plastic Logic technology. Plastic Logic has several key differences from e-readers already on the market, like Kindle, Sony Reader, and Readius. While Plastic Logic is a bit heavier than its counterparts, its display-screen dwarfs the competition. The plastic screens are not only bigger and more durable than its glass-screened competitors, but also employ the use of touchscreen technology. The actual name of the product as well as storage capacity will be revealed in January.—Myles Hutto
