On the heels of the announcement about Barnes & Noble's eBookstore (which TechCrunch reviews here) and that they'll be the vendor for the new Plastic Logic eReader, Plastic Logic has now announced that AT&T will provide wireless support for the new device, so just like with the Kindle readers access books anywhere they get a signal. This partnership also means that the device will connect internationally, but as Teleread points out it could create even more problems with the already overburdened AT&T network.
However, Plastic Logic continues to emphasize that their eReader is targeted more for business professionals and business documents than for reading books due to the larger screen. Considering the recent news though, I just don't buy it.
