Ebooks are Coming to Angus & Robertson and Borders(Australia)

The Australian is reporting:

Redgroup chief David Fenlon said the company aimed to launch the Kobo e-book service late next month via its Borders online retailing division, once a sufficient library of titles was available.


Prices for e-books would be priced "competitively", but Mr Fenlon declined to say how the price would compare with paper editions.

While the Kobo service will be compatible with existing mobile devices such as Blackberrys, iPhones or laptops, Redgroup will also sell simple electronic readers starting at about $200.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
