Plastic Logic content partner announcement Feb 9th: up against Kindle 2?

After playing with the Plastic Logic Reader at CES earlier this month, even though just a prototype, we're still excited about what's possibly the first aesthetically-pleasing ebook reader.  However with any device of this nature, appealing hardware is only half of the story: Plastic Logic have been teasing us regarding the identity of their first publishing partners since the Reader's first announcement, and now they're promising to tell all come the O'Reilly conference on February 9th.

Plastic Logic's recently announced e-newspaper probably suffered, ironically, for looking simply too much like a slick concept rendering.  We're so used to seeing realistic mock-ups that it's hard to believe something like the 7mm flexible display could actually exist.  However TG Daily have some more information and a video of the device in action at DEMO this week, and it's shaping up to be a real Kindle contender: 8.5 x 11-inches of touchscreen, both WiFi and Bluetooth, and peer-to-peer networking.
