Mobile operator offers more books
19.01.09 | Anna Richardson
Mobile phone operator 3 is to offer customers the chance to download more than 1,000 e-books and audio books to their mobiles, according to the Brave New World blog.
The Books on the Go service is reportedly already available to Vodafone customers and offers books for download from top publishers and is provided by Andy McNab’s GoSpoken.com. 3 UK’s entire customer-base will be able to preview free extracts before either downloading the whole book for £5 to £10, or choosing to download the book in several parts at a cost of £1 to £3 each.
But according to the blog's Martyn Daniels, the problem was that "even as a 3 customer we couldn't [find] the books or any refernce to them on any 3 site. If anyone at 3 knows about it please let’s us know as we would like to try it out, but can’t be bothered to keep searching for it."
