Kobo to Announce a Partnership with Brazilian Media Retailer Livraria Cultura Later Today

Here's an interesting rumor. I've just heard via the Portuguese speaking part of  Twitter that  Kobo is right now holding a press conference in Brazil. According to my source, Kobo is indeed announcing the partnership with Livraria Cultura that I uncovered last week.

I still cannot find any confirmation of this rumor, but my source has said that her newspaper has sent someone to the press event - which is still going on at this time. And since I already had that story last week, I'm going to go ahead and run with this one.

It's legit, IMO. I will report back when I find out more.

Update: Three Brazilian newspapers were at the event, and now I've been told that their stories have been embargoed until tomorrow's print edition. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I wasn't mislead.

Second Update: And here it is.

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."
