Kobo has announced that the Sony Reader Store will close on 16 August and that ‘soon after the closure’ Australian users will instead access its ‘comprehensive digital reading ecosystem’.
The Sony Reader Store will also close, with users to access Kobo instead, in the UK, Germany and Austria, and follows a similar change in the US and Canada in March.
In a statement, Kobo said the free Kobo App for Android will be ‘pre-loaded on select Sony smartphones and tablets’, but ‘timing and availability may vary by market and carrier’.
