Skiff reader is largest yet with 11.5" display to debut at CES

This is the Reader from the Hearst consortium formerly known as FirstPaper. 1600x 1200 11.5 inch touch screen. Finger and stylus touch say the articles



Skiff Reader is 1/4 inch thick weighing just over a pound with a battery that will last "typically " a week" Download content with WiFi or 3g (via sprint) from the Skiff store etc. You'll be able to purchase it at Sprint stores.

The Skiff content delivery service will available for other devices.

Display is LG's flexible display using e-ink and their "foil-backed" tech instead of glass. I wonder which is more durable Platic Logics or LG?
