Blioreader Coming to webOS, But Not at Launch

Ray Kurzweil’s ambitious (and perhaps somewhat delayed) software-based ebook ecosystem, Blioreader, looks like an interesting alternative to those from Amazon (Kindle), Barnes and Noble (nook), and Apple (iPad) that are based around hardware readers. Blioreader promises a rich multimedia environment that should be great for textbooks, magazines, children’s books, and the likes. Finally, it looks like the service might be launching next month on a number of platforms, including PCs, Macs, and various mobile platforms.

Unfortunately, Blioreader has informed us via Twitter that, while there are plans for webOS, a client won’t be available at launch.

That’s better than nothing, I suppose, and knowing that there are plans is better then being on “the back burner.” Let’s hope that the client comes soon, because in the meantime it’s just another of the major ebook vendors that don’t support webOS.
