40 Indonesian Publishers go together in Jakarta this past week as part of the announcement of BukuTablet, a new eBookstore.
BukuTablet is an app and service developed by PT Informotics Digital Persada, an Indonesian tech company. It’s still under development, and it’s expected to launch by the end of July for Android, with support for iOS and the Playbook coming later.
Details are still scarce on price and format, but I do know that this will be Indonesia’s second native eBookstore. Papataka launched its eBookstore in July 2009, and it now has tens of thousands of eBooks in stock from major publishers and the self-published,with more coming everyday.
