「Koboを通じて読書革命を」――楽天の電子書籍事業第2幕の幕開け

「Koboを通じて読書革命を」――楽天の電子書籍事業第2幕の幕開け

楽天は昨年買収したカナダのKoboが手掛ける電子書籍サービスを国内でも7月19日から展開することを正式に発表。7980円で販売される端末「kobo Touch」とグローバルで240万点のコンテンツラインアップで「読書革命」を起こすと宣言した。

 楽天は7月2日、電子書籍事業に関する記者発表会を開催し、昨年買収を発表したカナダの電子書籍事業者Koboが手掛けるサービスを国内でも展開することを正式に発表した。発表会に先立ってお伝えしたとおり、7月19日から端末の販売とストアサービス「Kobo イーブックストア」を同時に開始し、端末である「Kobo Touch」の価格は7980円。特設サイトでは予約受付が始まっている。

 koboは現在、世界190カ国、900万人が利用する電子書籍サービスを運営。Kobo Touchなどの自社製品だけでなく、iOS、Android OS、Windows OS、Mac OS向けにもアプリを用意している。日本ではまずKobo Touchの提供から開始し、ほかのプラットフォーム向けのアプリも今後提供予定となっている。


Kobo Touch 日本市場に投入するKobo Touchは、グローバルモデルと比べハードウェアレベルでの違いは見られない。Amazon.comのKindleなどと同様、モノクロ16階調の電子ペーパー(E Ink)ベースの端末で6インチの画面サイズは600×800ドットの解像度。サイズは114(幅)×166(奥行き)×10(高さ)ミリ、重量は185グラム。内蔵メモリは2Gバイトで、ユーザー利用可能領域は1Gバイトほど。通信機能はWi-Fi(IEEE 802.11b/g/n)のみで3Gモデルは非搭載。インタフェースとしてmicroUSBおよびmicroSDカードスロットを装備し、バッテリー持続時間は約1カ月。本体カラーはブラック、シルバー、ブルー、ライラックの4色。追ってフォトレビューもお届けする予定だが、これらハードウェア的なスペックは以前紹介したレビュー記事などを参照してほしい。

 楽天がこの分野で派遣を握るとは全く考えにくいが・・・。アマゾンの露払い??

This card features a 3% foreign transaction charge, a 3% balance transfer charge and a higher penalty APR that can be triggered by missed or late payments.

You could also consider enrolling in automatic payments via your credit card and loan providers to have payments automatically debited from your bank account, but this only tends to make the minimum payment on your credit cards and does not help instill a sense of money management.
