Kobo for eBook reading inside Galaxy Tab

One of the interesting and enjoyable function on a tablet is the possibility of reading books (eBooks). There are already some 3rd party applications that help you to perform this task but Samsung implemented in its upcoming Galaxy Tab a very interesting app. Rather then having its own store like Apple or expecting users to get their desired books from other stores online, Samsung developed it’s own launcher for reading eBooks, newspapers and magazines, all in one place. This will bring to the user over 2.2 million books, 2,500 newspapers and 1,600 magazines.

For eBooks, Kobo will share its impressive shelf collection of books to read, having a bigger collection than iBooks for Ipad. Kobo has designed the whole app exclusively for the Samsung tablet so it should use the full capability of the Galaxy Tab. The other apps included are Readers Hub displaying the newspapers and Zinio for sharing the magazines. Other apps on the Android Market can be used and might do a good or a better job but is good to know that there is an exclusive app specially created for Samsung Galaxy Tab.

    My question is, this kobo application will allow me to read/import my own e-books, the ones I already have?

    • http://www.thegalaxytab.com Bogdan

      Yes, the Kobo application will allow you to do so ;)

        • http://www.thegalaxytab.com Bogdan

  • MAYVIANTAY

    • http://www.thegalaxytab.com Bogdan

    It was disappointing to find out the Kobo app doesn’t have the page turning animation that I saw on some YouTube videos. Mine just does the normal slide.

    • Jameseke

      yes

    I want to buy the galaxy tab, but before I need to know if would be possible to read ADE on it. If it is I’ll probably buy it right now; but if it doesn’t I won’t.

        Hi. Does anyone know of the Galaxy Tab supports the Bluefire App? That one allows Adobe DRM epub & pdf to be read on iPads and other ereaders. Thanks

    How do you delete an ebook on the tab once you have finished it?

    • http://www.thegalaxytab.com Bogdan

      Hold your thumb on the book in the Library and you can delete it after.

      • Tara

        the only option it gives me when I hold my thumb on it is
        read it
        book details

        • http://www.thegalaxytab.com Bogdan

          You should have received an update for Kobo because I wasn’t able either to remove books before. Did you update the firmware through KIES. There was an update for that one as well ( I have the tab from Europe).

  • Tara

    And why do I need a SIM Card to install Magazine reader Zinio?

  • Antogaro

    Dear sirs: I’ve got a tablet on Android and a PC on windows. My PC has loaded Adobe Digital Edition and many eBooks that work on that system normally. My problem is I can remove these eBooks to the tablet, with Android.

    My question is if you have got any program for Android, to be loaded on the tablet and to remove the eBooks from my PC using Kies and be read on the tablet without problem.

    Sincerely.

    I would like to read an ebook on the Galaxy Tab but am unable to find out how that can be done. In fact, I’ve read a great deal about what a Galaxy can do but precious little about how to do any of it. And, yes, I’ve downloaded the pdf manual but most of my time is spent navigating from this page to that page to yet another page…and so on.

    I’m learning that this device is more for diddling around than for actually getting anything done. I picked up the book I wanted to download at the library and am more than halfway through it and I STILL can’t download the book to this device.

    Am hoping to return this time waster.

  • Jenniepo23

    You really play it seem so gentle with your intro but I undergo this matter to be really something which I anticipate I would never believe. It seems too complicated and rattling spacious for me. I am sensing advancing for your succeeding install, I testament try to get the fall of it!
