Plastic Logic announced in a press release that its e-book reader will feature AT&T 3G. Barnes & Noble’s ebook store is the exclusive content supplier for the upcoming reader. The reader hopes to compete with Amazon’s Kindle.

The press release did not mention anything about pricing but an extra fee is likely involved. AT&T will slap a fee onto anything. The Kindle’s wireless access is provided by Sprint at no extra charge.

The reader uses E-ink technology. It is under .25 inches think and weighs less than a magazine. It comes with a touch screen and has Wi-Fi support.
