Kobo Takes eBooks Around the World

A session at Digital Book World 2012

Wednesday 25th January, 2012

3:45pm to 4:00pm (EST)

Having just experienced its first Christmas season with important new partnerships in Britain (WH Smith) and France (FNAC), Kobo heads into 2012 with new ownership that seems to suggest even more robust funding and aggressive international expansion. They have been the leading general ebook retailer with a robust social reading component and they have historically been the ebook retailer most willing to share its experiences and its data with the community at large. At DBW, Kobo EVP Michael Tamblyn will talk about what they've learned during the Christmas season about their audiences, pricing in different markets, and the sale and consumption of illustrated ebooks that are made possible by the iPad and by Kobo's own Vox tablet device.
