I came across this interesting little tidbit the other day. Fnac are a French retail chain, and back in November they started selling their own ereader (alongside the ones they already carried). According to the magazine Challenges, Fnac have sold 12 thousand of the FnacBook since November.
That’s really not much, is it? I tried to come up with a way to convince you that this was a decent number of units sold, but really it’s not. Sales have been lackluster, and I don’t think they’ll improve. The ereader market in Europe is crowded, and it’s being encroached by tablets. (Why do you think Samsung pulled out?)
