Kobe’s newest device is focused on the reading experience. It’s a tablet that has been designed specifically to be used mostly for reading ebooks.
This development follows on Kobe’s decision to allow ebooks from more accessible formats to be bought, sold and read on its readers. Kobe has dramatically expanded the self-published author’s ability to reach readers, the independent bookstore’s ability to offer ebooks through their own venues (rather than having to lose customers to Amazon’s Kindle editions or B&N’s Nook editions), and has given readers access to a broader range of books.
All in all that’s not only good business, it’s good for authors and their fans.
