Interesting - but a different kettle of fish, I would think. It's display is colour, and it seems to be intended to double-up as a kind of iphone/netbook hybrid. That means the screen is likely to be a conventional colour LCD rather than e-ink like the Kindles and e-Readers, which means the battery charge life is likely to be far less - closer, in fact, the the battery life of a netbook.

All just speculation at the moment, of course...

Is it a magazine or is it a TV channel?

Plastic Logic e-reader aims to challenge Kindle and they are in Cambridge. I wonder...

They don't seem to be aiming at TTA's, or SF's, segment of the market. Perhaps more at business and science publications.

Pete tells me that he's expecting Fictionwise updates on January 18th and 25th, theoretically. Not sure which issue of what when but with F'wise I'm not sure any prediction is worthwhile at present.

This is mainly to ensure you know we haven't forgotten.

CW's 10 and 9 have risen to 4 and 7 respectively in our F'wise top 10 recently. We aren't sure why but its good to see. Alison is also higher than usual but I'm never quite sure what the positions on that list indicate in terms of sales or interest.

I have a feeling this has been posted about somewhere else on here, but can't find it:-

Do you own IZ etc if you purchased them from Fictionwise?

Is publishing about to have an iPod moment?

He doesn't seem to know much about Fictionwise's method of resolving the incompatibility problem.

I watched Click on the BBC last night/this am and maybe, with that and the sudden loss of Macmillan on Amazon, we were a little hasty in our judgement.
