German-based ebook retailer txtr is to power the ebook store on Acer’s LumiRead tablet, providing all content within the app as well as operating all aspects of the store including billing and support.
The store is being rolled out alongside the tablet in Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, UK, Ireland and Spain and will come to other locations in the “coming months.”
