Last year during IFA we broke the news that Samsung was working on three major hubs that add a tremendous amount of content to their tablet and phone lineup. Since then, all of Samsung’s devices come bundled with them and they are a boon to the average customer. The Readers Hub continues to be one of the best sellers and provides content from Zinio and Kobo. This gets you reading right out of the box without having to install a ton of third party programs. There have been lots of changes in this last year since the program has been out, and Samsung is revising the entire Readers Hub experience for the better.
Rolling out in a few weeks is the revised version of the Samsung Readers Hub. The major content partners are still being kept in the new service, but you are going to see tons of new things. One of the major new facets is the inclusion of comics and graphic novels, which showcases the full color and resolution displays found in the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7+ and 10.1 inch models. There will also be more multimedia content, such as enhanced ebooks that have both audio and video!
I am totally looking forward to the new changes to the Hub experience and once it arrives you can expect a full review.
