[CES 2010] The Que reader looks really great, there’s no question about that. Next to it, the Kindle looks so cheap, but it is still the best selling ebook out there, I think. That said the Que’s user interface and demonstration content (USA Today looked fantastic). It is possible to sync files over USB or Wi-Fi (subscription content too), but there no 3G connection (I’m totally fine with that). Que has a deal with Barnes & Noble, so they should be more than OK content-wise, but the killer is the price: $650 – it’s way too high and I seriously doubt that buyers will line up for that one. If you wonder, there’s no web browsing, which is a pity because some news sites do work really well on eBooks with web capability.
