I added more info from press and videos to the Plastic_Logic wiki page. I saw a couple of mentions of WiFi, but also a statement that it was not yet available. All other "wireless" statements could have been about BlueTooth, which definitely is on the device.

Dale, where's this wiki page you speak of? I can't find it.
Well here it is: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Plastic_Logic

All you have to do is tap wiki at the top of any MobileRead forum page and type in Plastic Logic and hit go. Did you not know we have a wiki?

Revolutionary Plastic Electronics Technology

Plastic Logic’s display technology, first developed at Cambridge University, uses highresolution transistor arrays on flexible plastic substrates, manufactured at a low temperature. The promise of plastic electronics is to disintermediate the traditional silicon based semiconductor industry with components and products that are lighter, less expensive, and more environmentally friendly. Plastic electronics technology has broad applicability across many markets. IDTechEx, an industry research group, estimates the plastic electronics industry will be a $30 billion market by 2015.

“Plastic Logic is really innovating on two fronts that represent major market opportunities. We have created fundamentally advanced plastic electronics technology, enabling us to develop reading devices that will transform the way we publish, distribute and consume content,” said Archuleta.

Plastic Logic’s go-to-market strategy will include direct e-commerce as well as partnerships with publishing, distribution, retail, and other information services companies.

The Company is also approaching another significant milestone in commercializing its product with the opening of its new manufacturing facility in Dresden, Germany on September 17, 2008. The factory is the world’s first commercial-scale plastic electronics manufacturing facility. It will begin to immediately ramp production on the Plastic Logic reader.

“Plastic Logic has the technology to take a leadership position that could make a major mark on the e-reading category. This is a Company to watch, ” said Tim Bajarin of Creative Strategies.

Final pricing for the Plastic Logic reader will be announced when the product ships; the Company expects it to be competitively priced among e-reading products. To stay tuned, go to http://www.plasticlogic.com.

From a press release from 2008-05-22:

"The factory will start with one production line
but has space to expand annual capacity to 2.2 million units, Von Werne said."

Interesting, but how would you search on it? Anyone who is considering this for technical/professional manuscripts needs to be able to "search" for files or chapters. I look forward to hearing more.

It will have a virtual keyboard you can use on the touch screen. You can use your fingers or I think it also comes with a stylus.

This is the type of person who needs one of these types of reader, so they can carry most or all of their documents with them without lugging around 200 pounds of materials.

No ... I'm not kidding 200 pounds is very common.
I'm not sure this would be the answer. Depending on the interface, I always needed physical paper to lay out at my fingertips. But I suspect folders or tabs could be something that would be useful in that aspect.
