Samsung warns Italians that Kobo is leaving the Readers Hub, teases 'new and improved' e-book service

We hope you took advantage of those Italian lessons. If you didn't, the gist is that Samsung has warned at least one visitor (and Galaxy phone owner) that its Readers Hub will soon drop Kobo e-book support. While there isn't a mentioned cutoff point, Samsung is steering the faithful to the regular Kobo app on Google Play if they want to keep reading. The company's only explanation may be a good one: it's promising a "new and improved" e-book service that should be ready in the near future. We'd very much like to know what that is, but until Samsung is more forthcoming with actual details, we'll have to be content with the company's alert-as-teaser approach to marketing.
