A special social version of Kobo eReader software was revealed today at DevCon during the BlackBerry PlayBook announcement. Kobo for BlackBerry PlayBook is an industry-first social eReading experience, with lots of BBM flavored sharing and communications options.
New features include shopping for books with a friend, reading with a group, exchanging passages and discussing books in real time. These new social features will reinvent the book club with slick BBM connectivity.
There are at present about 2 million titles in the Kobo store, as well as thousands of free classic books available for download.
Kobo for PlayBook will launch early 2011.
