UK E-Reader Sales Blowing Up, But Still Not That Impressive

Our cousins in the distant Eastern nation of Britain have a new-found love for e-readers. Sales, it appears, are increasing at incredible rates, and the number of both brands and retail stores carrying those brands is getting higher by the minute. In fact, it’s estimated that within two years, sales of e-readers will top 250,000 per year.

Wait, that can’t be right. Surely they mean some far greater number. And in two years, the entire landscape of tablet-form computers will have changed. I’m advising you to take this news with a nugget of salt.
