Fujitsu to establish an online e-book store in Japan

Fujitsu today announced that it will establish an online e-book store offering a wide variety of digital content starting May 2011. The new service is designed as one way for Fujitsu to expand its PC and mobile phone business in Japan, offering an environment that will allow customers to fully enjoy digital publications. As a first step, Fujitsu’s new online e-book store will provide digital content through a partnership with Dai Nippon Printing Co and DNP’s affiliate, Inc. Through its partnership Fujitsu will be offering a large-scale catalog of e-book content. The service will offer approximately 300,000 magazines, white papers, statistical information, survey reports, and other publications geared towards business people provided by G-Search Limited, a Fujitsu Group company.

Fujitsu will continue to offer a range of services that leverage the company’s strengths in cloud services, sensor technologies, and multifunction terminal development. The service offers full-featured search capabilities, including cross-searches of content provided by the DNP Group and content from the Fujitsu Group. In addition to PCs, users will be able to view e-book content on a wide variety of terminals, such as Android™ OS-enabled tablets and smartphones.
