Shortcovers partners with Borders, changes name to Kobo

I've been enjoying Shortcovers for a few months on my Google Android and iPhone devices and loved that the books were easy to access on multiple platforms. I actually just included some good info on using Shortcovers content on my new B&N nook thanks to their EPUB format. We now hear that Shortcovers has been rebranded as Kobo with their major financing coming from Borders. You should still be able to access purchased content from Kobo on the nook due to the Adobe Digital Editions support and cross platform titles. There are now mobile clients for BlackBerry, Palm WebOS, iPhone, and Android smartphones as well as ereaders like the nook and Sony Reader.
