Hanvon to expand to Taiwan

I don't know about you, but this story caught me off guard. Hanvon are already active in Europe, USA, Japan, and China; I'm a littl surprised to find out that they don't already operate in Taiwan.

From english.Cri.com:

The Chinese mainland's biggest e-book maker Hanvon is set to open a branch in Taiwan at the end of the month and launch its e-book readers here in October.

The branch office will market ereaders and look to work with the island's content providers, said Hanvon's General Manager Chen Shaoqiang Tuesday.

Chen talked with Xinhua on the sidelines of a forum on digital content industries attended by business people and experts from both the mainland and Taiwan.

A Hanvon will also open e-book stores in Taiwan just ahead of its ereader launch, Chen said. The company would unveil several new stylish models of ereaders for Taiwan consumers.

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."
