Samsung announces ebook store from WH Smiths for Galaxy Tab
The Samsung Galaxy Tab launches in the UK on Monday, and despite the slightly outrageous pricing, here's one reason why you'll be wanting to down tools and buy it. Maybe.
Samsung have partnered with WH Smith for their equivalent of Apple's iBook Store, meaning the ability to buy thousands of eBooks currently available through the high street retailer's website.
The app will include special offers like the current 60% off selected top eBooks, as well as exclusive promotions such as the Richard and Judy Book Club.
“WHSmith are delighted to announce this partnership with Samsung, we’re confident that the combination of our bookselling expertise with their electronics innovation has resulted in an eBooks App which really adds value and meets all the reading needs of Galaxy Tab owners,” said WH Smith, rather obviously.
Samsung have also announced partnerships with Gameloft and the Financial Times for content creation - they just need to crack that pricing now and the public might look twice.
