Plastic Logic says "Nope!" to those hoping for a color eBook reader by next spring

Quote:
Plastic Logic has denied the reports. "The video report is inaccurate and the individual (who was apparently filmed while attending a trade show was not an authorized Barnes & Noble spokesperson) was misinformed," the company says.

"We are excited to have Barnes & Noble powering the Plastic Logic e-commerce store. While colour is on Plastic Logic's roadmap, it is not on the map for the Spring of 2010. Plastic Logic has said for quite some time it is working on colour, but not for a product in the coming year," it concludes.
I always thought it smelled fishy.

I think that goof that spilled the beans in that infamous B&N video was just an overexcited employee trying to one up his colleagues. It didn't seem right from the start...

Boo. I am still waiting for a color device from one of these companies. The first to offer a 10" color touch device wins my dollars and the way it's going I think Apple will win the race (if rumors are true).

As you've just learned, rumors are not always true.
Enjoy the wait, though.

I know it's not really what you're looking for, but the Gigabyte T1028X already fits that description.
