[Sharp introduces its cloud-based media e-bookstore service named "GALAPAGOS" along with two new e-readers--a 5.5" version and a 10.8" version.]

Tokyo -- Sharp held an announcement in Tokyo to introduce its first cloud-based media service business, an e-bookstore service.

Sharp Corporation will launch a new cloud-based media service business, named “GALAPAGOS”, to provide a new user experience that evolves to meet each customer’s changing needs with a network service and device specifically designed for the Japanese market. The first effort in this area will be an e-bookstore service that is planned to begin in December of this year. Two compatible tablet terminals have been developed specifically as e-book readers and will be introduced at the same time.

This new e-bookstore provides an “Automatic Scheduled Delivery Service” (a fee-based service) for periodical publications. The most recent editions of newspapers and magazines that a user is subscribed to can be delivered to and read by the user’s e-book readers. In addition, free trial versions of recommended e-book content can also be delivered to the e-book reader, letting users immediately purchase the content of their favor.

Two e-book reader models have been developed—a mobile type featuring a 5.5-inch LCD screen that reads like a paperback book, and a home type featuring a 10.8-inch high-resolution HD LCD that allows users to fully enjoy magazines formatted with two-page spreads.
