The wait has got over, finally. Plastic Logic, which had been giving us sneak peeks of its e-reader that will be known as Que proReader has unveiled the device after making us all wait for more than a year. The CES at Las Vegas proved to be a perfect platform for Plastic Logic to announce the arrival of its new Que proReader.

The CES platform saw demos of the final version of the device. To begin shipping in April, the Que will be made available to customers at the Barnes & Noble stores and at BN.com as well as from Plastic Logic. You can even check out the Que online store now to know how to make the device yours.

Built on the technology based on Plastic Logic’s proprietary plastic transistor technology that allows for a large, lightweight, glass-free display), the Que comes with 8.5 x 11 inch screen that enables touch technology.

Its is more than obvious that the Plastic Logic brass has made the device aimed at the businessperson who really looks for something to read. This is explained by the content deals Plastic Logic has already inked with business-oriented media brands such as the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Fast Company. The Que has also been equipped with capabilities that let the user drag and drop Microsoft Office documents and other business files the PC to the e-reader.

Expected to carry a high price tag around$799, Plastic Logic would take its Que to the AT&T 3G network. It may also bring in an inexpensive version, which could cost around $649. However this version might miss out on 3G connectivity, but would have 4GB of storage, Wi-Fi, USB, and Bluetooth.
