AIMED AT business users,
the Que e-reader uses a
266.7-millimeter display
from E Ink, based on the
same sort of technology
used in the Kindle. But
unlike other e-reader
displays, which are con-
trolled with silicon tran-
sistors on a glass backing,
it uses organic transis-
tors deposited on plastic.
This makes for a lighter ,
tougher device.
