Nothing about retail bookstore partnerships, so this might just be an announcement that PC World/Currys and big supermarkets will carry the readers.
They should have a market advantage with the Nook Glowlight though.
There aren't many bookstore chains left in the UK. Waterstones has already announced it'll sell Kindles, WHSmith is selling Kobo readers and books. I think Blackwell is the only chain left, but they tend to be university book shops, from what I've seen.
