Kobo selects an EPUB3 viewer for its products

From the press release posted by Marketwatch:
Quote:
ACCESS CO., LTD. a global provider of advanced software technologies to the mobile, beyond-PC and digital TV markets, today announced that its EPUB 3-compatible eBook viewer, NetFront(TM) BookReader v1.0 EPUB Edition, has been adopted as a standard viewer engine for EPUB 3-compatible services by Kobo Inc. a global leader in eReading, and a subsidiary of Rakuten, Inc, one of Japan's largest Internet service companies.
confirms the speculation on how KOBO is supporting Japanese books.

Yes. Who in turn bought Be Inc.'s BeOS after they folded.
Their internet appliances seem to have been just 10 years ahead of their time...

Oh look, there's an open source implementation of BeOS: Haiku
