Baker & Taylor to Launch "Next Big Thing" in E-books
In his IdeaLogical blog, industry veteran and consultant Mike Shatzkin writes about Blio, a proprietary e-book platform from Baker & Taylor that "has capabilities nothing presented previously can match."
The new platform, by K-NFB, is slated for launchon Jan. 7, 2010, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
According to Shatzkin, "Blio is a software client that can work on “any device with an operating system”, which means computers and iPhones, but not Kindles. Based only on the demo we saw from Baker & Taylor Senior VP Linda Gagnon last week (of course I’d rather be reporting on something I saw on my own computer or iPhone), the presentation is the best I’ve ever seen."
