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.
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.
