Fnac held a press event today where they unveiled their new ereader, the FnacBook. Yes, I double checked and that really is the name. You might recognize the hardware as the ; they’re retail partners (I’m not sure that’s the right word) and both are using an ereader originally developed by Sagem Wireless.
Fnac now have the Fnacbook up for pre-order; retail will be 199€. An observant person might recall that Thalia are selling the Oyo for 139€. The FnacBook costs more because it ships with 3G, not just Wifi. Other than wireless, the FnacBook has the same specs as the Oyo.
