Information Week reports on the latest venture in online only media, and a prospective new ventue for a Kindle-like e-reader. “The Detroit Free Press, which “delivered” its first online-only newspaper yesterday, has announced a partnership with a Silicon Valley startup, called Plastic Logic, that’s developing an e-reader. Is this the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship between newspapers and e-reader companies?” It will launch with a small sample.
There is a nice piece about Plastic Logic here, in the NY Observer. “So far, the Financial Times, USA Today and digital publishers like Zinio—which converts print magazines from Cosmopolitan and InStyle to Mother Jones and The Economist into digital formats—have, among others, partnered with Plastic Logic.”
