You might recall that I reported on the launch of the Interpark Biscuit, a Korean ereader, several months ago. The Biscuit (pictured) is a Kindle clone with 3G and an E-ink screen. When it was launched, Interpark had said that they wouldn't have newspapers or magazines in the Biscuit ebookstore.
Yesterday I came across this news story:
Interpark, which sells the e-book terminal Biscuit, launched a service to enable e-subscriptions to 15 dailies, including The Dong-A Ilbo and Sports Dong-A, and five magazines including Dong-A Business Review that are automatically delivered to the Biscuit terminal.
Unlike a conventional e-book newspaper subscription in which readers must select a newspaper and download the content, the latest issue of a daily is electronically delivered to a Biscuit around 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. every day, a time when the terminal is rarely used.
