China Telecom’s ebookstore to launch in July

The mainland China market is so huge I thought this was worth it's own post. China Tech News is reporting:

The once-postponed mobile phone reading service of China Telecom will now reportedly be formally launched in late July 2010.

An insider revealed to the local media that the related departments of China Telecom have started planning and deploying resources for the launch of this new service and the company will set up a mobile reading base in Zhejiang at the same time. By then, China Telecom will sign a strategic agreement with the General Administration of Press and Publication of China for its development in the Chinese digital publishing and e-book sector.

BTW, this is the second Chinese cell company to start an ebookstore. The first (that I know of) was China Mobile.

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."
