This means they're competing with Kobo and Books on Board and others for content sales to some extent and a lot of the time Kobo & BoB will be cheaper (somethings by a lot) with promo's and coupons. They make nothing or next to nothing on devices and are relying on that content sales.

And the UK, they also sell Nook devices and content in the UK although I don't know how successful that's been.
