Uh oh, it seems as though Kobo has just lost a major partner when it comes to support for their e-book service, as South Korean conglomerate Samsung seemed to have dropped all association with Kobo and their e-books under its Readers Hub app. A user sent in a screenshot to HDBlog, where this screenshot certainly says plenty of words – not to the tune of a thousand, but enough to give a clue to the masses that Kobo will eventually be phased out of the Readers Hub, and those users who want to make use of Kobo’s services will just need to download an app directly from the Google Play Store. Not only that, this does not mean you should ditch Samsung products altogether if you are currently an avid fan of Kobo’s e-book service, as Samsung did drop a confirmation that they will be offering a new and improved e-book service that is currently in the pipeline – and will be rolled out to the masses in due time.
