Is that an iceberg dead ahead? NO, it’s an E-READER, and they are coming right at ya, especially at the Consumer Electronics Show, currently underway in Las Vegas. At Steve Ballmer’s keynote last night, Microsoft unveiled its Slate device, which was cute and touchable, but not the fold over Courier everyone has been lusting after.
As part of the presentation, there was a flash of Graphic.ly, which recently announced funding , and was shown off as a a storefront for downloadable comics.
During Microsoft’s keynote at CES 2010 this evening, Steve Ballmer showed off a very cool mobile and web application called Graphic.ly, a platform that aims to be the ultimate digital content delivery system for the publishing world. Graphic.ly’s first target is comic book fans. With Graphic.ly, comic book fans can not only access the content they want from multiple devices — including mobile phones and the desktop — they can also interact with other fans and with the comic creators.
So LongBox has some competition? Graphic.ly is not available for Macs, so we’ll have to pass on that for now.
