Kobo on the BlackBerry PlayBook

Today we’re continuing our incredible momentum with an announcement with RIM – we plan to preload the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet with Kobo!

Kobo will come preloaded, bringing over 2.2 million books to the new BlackBerry tablet. Users will be able to access our massive catalog of free books, new releases, bestsellers and all time classics, download for free or buy, build their libraries and have a rich reading experience. As always with Kobo, users will be able to access their libraries – anytime, anyplace.

Readers get ready! The BlackBerry Tablet offers an elegant design, crisp screen, and its size and weight are perfect for longer reading sessions – and it will start hitting stores early in 2011.

Also, our plans to bring social eReading to our BlackBerry app are now official. Read our Kobo with BBM release here or visit our blog “Kobo Goes Social on BlackBerry!” to watch our video.
