Toshiba to launch Blio-based e-book store

updated 08:50 pm EDT, Tue June 29, 2010

Software to come preloaded on notebooks

Toshiba has posted a teaser page for its upcoming e-book store, Toshiba Book Place. The software will ship preloaded on the company's notebook computers, along with a sample collection of free books. The portal is one of the first to be based on the Blio platform.

The Blio-based software will allow users to read full-color content, either as a full book view or text-only mode. The utility provides options for adding text or voice notes, adjusting reading speed and font size, translation to or from English, and playing back the text using a synthesized voice.

Users will be able to access a range of content, ranging from best sellers to free public-domain books. Toshiba has yet to announce a specific time-frame for its Book Place launch. [via Mobileread]
