Aimed at business users, the Que e-reader uses a 266.7-millimeter display from E Ink, based on the same sort of technology used in the Kindle. But unlike other e-reader displays, which are controlled with silicon transistors on a glass backing, it uses organic transistors deposited on plastic. This makes for a lighter, tougher device.
