Plastic Logic is not a German company, they just have an office in Germany. The headquarter is in the US.
Wired reported they canceled all orders for the device and are not accepting new ones:
Plastic Logic isn’t shipping the Que e-reader, though the company is officially calling it a “delay.” Plastic Logic has canceled all pre-oders and is no longer offering a date as to when we can see the Que in the real world. It has also stopped taking pre-orders for the device.
I guess they are now thinking about a different business model.
