Another e-reading device? Yes, it’s true. Plastic Logic will release an electronic newspaper reader on Monday complete with e-ink, wireless internet connection, lightweight build, blah blah blah. It sounds cool, but why would someone buy a device that is so one-dimensional? Would you own a Kindle and a newspaper reader and a smart phone and an MP3 player? Not if you can help it! Tech developers, we want one device that does all of those things.
As far as I know, the iPhone is the closest thing to the all-in-one device of our dreams. All it needs now is GPS and color e-ink, maybe on a flip-out screen. And a built-in Swiss Army knife. And a microchip that functions as your ID and credit card so you don’t have to carry a wallet.
