Kobo partners with Pocket to enhance e-reading platform

Apart from launching four e-readers today, Kobo also announced a special partnership with popular read-it later app, Pocket.

In case you didn't know, Pocket is a ubiquitous app that allows users to save interesting content on the platform. If you've used Evernote's clipping feature, then you're getting the picture.

This will be great news to Kobo readers, as they can now save their favorite lines and stories in a snap, only to be accessed later on mobile devices or PC and Mac.

According to Kobo, people nowadays read books five times more on e-readers than on apps and that 90 percent of its users read each week. Pocket, on the other hand, claims that its users read approximately three books' worth of web content.

Given the case, the partnership is an attempt to offer a more convenient platform for both Kobo and Pocket users.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
