Shortcovers set to launch tonight

While nerdy Americans await delivery of their Kindle 2s, nerdy Canadians can console themselves by trying Indigo’s new Shortcovers service. The ambitious e-book service “ which allows users to download titles to their cellphones or personal computers for anywhere from $9.99 to $19.99 “ launches tonight (or tomorrow, technically) at exactly one minute after midnight. You can see Q&Q Omni‘s previous coverage of Shortcovers here, you can get a sneak preview of what to expect here, and if you’re the early-adopter type you can go here tonight to actually download something.
