Plastic Logic, makers of the high end e-reader the "Que," have reportedly canceled all preorders for the device. The large touchscreen e-reader, which has a starting price of $650 USD and hits $800 USD for models with WiFI and 3G wireless, have gone through numerous delays and there are even reports that Plastic Logic is even up for sale.

Unless the Que has some supreme functions not covered by anything else on the market, Plastic Logic may be wondering the same thing.
