Ebooks Corporation has been selling downloadable books since the launch of its ebookstore, eBooks.com, in 2000. The company now hosts an inventory of 27,000 titles from 130 global publishers, including Random House, Time Warner and Simon & Schuster. ebooks.Mobile, the company's forthcoming mobile portal, will be accessible from any web-enabled handset.

Stephen Cole, CEO of eBooks.com said, "This arrangement will make it very easy for Nokia mobile device users to find and read their favorite authors. Our customers are especially tech savvy and very mobile. They will appreciate the ability to access their library anywhere, any time."
