Skiff Reader

Skiff LLC showed the Skiff Reader at CES and outdid the Que with an 11.5 inch grayscale touchcreen display and weighing 17.5 ounces.It will run on Wi-Fi and 3G, and boasts one week of battery life but that is probably without wireless. No shipping date or price was announced. Skiff is also working on a color version that could be ready by the end of the year. Skiff LLC is a Hearst Corp. incubator and is working on creating an e-publishing platform that works with a variety of devices and a number of publishers.
