Kobo’s eReader is being updated to include WiFi. This will allow customers to get wireless delivery of their favorite newspapers and magazines. According to the press release, the Kobo store has over 2.2 million books which includes new releases, best sellers, classics, and even free books. The Kobo eReader supports open standards like EPUB and PDF too.
“We introduced the Kobo eReader to make eReading more affordable and accessible for consumers. It worked, making the Kobo eReader a bestseller, and the industry followed,” said Michael Serbinis, CEO of Kobo. “Today, we are excited to introduce our latest generation, the Kobo Wireless eReader, enabling customers to shop and update their library on the go with superior performance for only $139 USD. The launch of the new Kobo Wireless eReader caps a very busy month for Kobo, in which we announced a new application that will come preloaded on the Samsung Galaxy, introduced the new Kobo Desktop and updates to our iPhone and Android apps, and unveiled the first social reading application for Blackberry. The market for eReading continues to grow at an unparalleled pace, and Kobo is advancing even faster.”
