Borders has bought a stake in on-line book seller Kobo, which will take over the bookselling giant's eBook store and extend the service onto PDA phones too. Borders UK might be clearing the shelves, but the US company is expanding its electronic presence in the face of competition from Amazon and Barnes & Nobel amongst others. …
eBooks with Borders pricing? No thanks.
As bookstores go, Borders is the biggest rip off. I always chuckle when I receive their email coupons to get 20% off of any DVD or the like. AFTER their coupon is applied their merchandise is ALMOST as cheap as it is everywhere else. Borders is fun to browse through, but I make my purchases elsewhere. If their traditional brick and mortar merchandise pricing is anything to go off of, then I'm sure Amazon will easily beat them on eBook and eBook reader pricing.
Searching for "IPHONE EPUB" led me to the Stanza app. Don't know what the limitations are, but there are a couple of ways to read ePub files on iPhones.
But not DRMed ones
Stanza is a great e-book reader app, I use it daily. But while it's based around the ePub format (the desktop app converts anything it imports to ePub for uploading to your iPhone), it can't handle DRMed ePub files such as Adobe Digital Editions.
NO, NO, NO.
I will NEVER pay out for stuff that i have no control over.
