Samsung Galaxy Tab to use DoCoMo ebookstore in Japan

Samsung must really be planning to push the ebook aspect.You might recall that the Galaxy Tab ships with a Kobo app. Well, Kobo might be a viable solution for English language ebooks, but they haven't even touched the Japanese language market yet.I wonder what other ebookstores Samsung will partner with?From Trading Markets:

Users of Samsung Electronics Co.'s (KSE:005930) Galaxy Tab will be able to download e-books through NTT DoCoMo Inc.'s (TSE:9437) cellular network, underscoring the move toward packaging such mobile devices together with content delivery.

The Galaxy Tab, similar to Apple Inc.'s iPad, is expected to debut in Japan by next March. It features a 7-inch touch-panel screen and runs on Google Inc.'s Android operating system. Through the partnership with DoCoMo, users will be able to access roughly 100,000 titles from an e-book downloading service offered by DoCoMo and Dai Nippon Printing Co. (TSE:7912).

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."
