The Telekom closes PagePlace

The Telekom informed us that it is closing its digital online shop PagePlace as of 28th of February 2014. Although it has undergone constant development, it could not keep up with the pace of other providers and has attracted limited number of users. The company would concentrate on building and further developing the Tolino tablets and eReaders.

All authors that distribute to PagePlace through us will receive their February provisions in the end of March. The distribution to the online shop PagePlace ceases in the end of February.
