■What is Unlimited Tablet, the world’s first comprehensive, flat-rate e-magazine service?
Unlimited Tablet, provided to AEON by OPTiM, is the world’s first※3 flat-rate, comprehensive e-magazine service※4.  With its motto of “Whenever, Wherever, Effortlesslye, the JPY500 per month※5 service includes an all-you-can-read magazine service (with up to 445 issues)※6, a family-shared camera service, and a cloud storage service.  Unlimited Tablet was developed using OPTiM’s boundary-stretching technologies, which the company has cultivated through its long-time management of business-related smart devices, and the know-how acquired through their smart device management platform.  The result is a service that’s secure and easy to use.  Moreover, a user can use this service on his/her tablet and smartphone with just one account, which equates to unparalleled convenience -- for instance, a user can use it on her smartphone during the morning commute, and on her tablet at home.

■Unlimited Tablet – Features:
  • The “445 popular magazines” includes a diverse selection of business and personal topics such as economics, entertainment, fashion, food, home design, travel, and sports.  Users can read the back issues anytime, anywhere, as many times as they want.  And once the magazine is downloaded, it can be read offline.  Plus, unlike some other e-magazine services which only allow readers to view part of their content, with Unlimited Tablet you can read each magazine’s full content.※7
  • The family-shared camera service and cloud storage service allow users to share their pictures with family and friends.  The photos are stored in the cloud, so they’re always accessible – even when a device breaks and a new one is purchased.  Pictures can also be imported to a home computer.※8
  • With the family camera app※9 that accompanies the family-share camera service, users can print up to 15 pictures per month for free, including their own pictures or pictures taken by other smartphones and digital cameras.

Unlimited Tablet is available for devices with the following specs:

■System Requirements

  • iOS devices:
    ・iPad : iOS 6.0 or later
