450 Thousand eReaders Sold in Germany

The German market research firm Media Control is currently selling the results of a recent survey, and not all details have been released. The survey was conducted on Germans 15 and older, with about half of respondents reporting that the main reasons for buying an eReader was the small size and large storage capacity. About 54% appreciated eReaders being smaller and lighter than a printed book, and about the same percentage liked being able to carry around a large digital library.  Accessibility was valued by about 50%, because they liked being bale to purchase and download eBooks at home.
