Sharp to Introduce International Models Of E-book Reader Galapagos


Sharp announced recently they would introduce the e-book reader Galapagos[J], which was introduced in Japan last October, in U.S and several emerging countries such as Mainland China, India and Brazil.  The current models enable the company’s original e-book format of XMDF, and upcoming models to be sold outside Japan are expected to support e-Pub format and 3G connectivity as well as WiFi.

The company also plans to deploy it as a textbook browser this month at IITH, Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad, which aims to prove it as a tool for online education programs especially for rural areas and encourage the usage at schools in African nations.
