Two’s company, three’s a crowd – and I suppose that Samsung has figured out that the Kobo e-book service would make the Samsung Readers Hub 2.0 too crowded, hence making the decision to leave this particular service out of the final equation. It is said that the Samsung Readers Hub 2.0 is compatible with the Samsung Galaxy S3 at the moment, where it will handle all the nuances of Samsung’s e-book service in addition to Press Display for newspapers and Zinio for magazines. For those of you who have merrily rooted your compatible devices, you would be bummed out to know that this app does not work on such devices that have gone over to the Dark Side – at least that is what Samsung feels towards rooted devices. You can download the Samsung Readers Hub 2.0 for free over at the Samsung App store.
As for those who have a tinge of nostalgia wash over them and want to continue using Kobo e-books, you can always go ahead and perform a download of the Kobo app for free over at the Google Play Store.
