HTC released Touchbook e-book service

We have written before about HTC’s push into services, and today we bring news of a new development – the release of an e-book service in Asia via its [email protected] on-device on-line portal.

The Touchbook software allows various magazines to be read on the device, and appears to be a subscription service for 50 Yuan (about $7.25) per month, with data costs included with the subscription on the Chunghwa Telecom network in Taiwan.

At this time its not known when this service will roll-out to the rest of the world. The software can be downloaded from HTC’s [email protected] Asia website here.
