Americans and Europeans go to Asia and are generally surprised about the small size of shops that sell electronics. Both Europe and America are now dominated by very few small chains such as CompUSA, Best Buy in the States or Media Markt and Fnac in Europe, but for FON asia is fantastic cause we can get the Foneras into retail in a much easier way in the very competitive world of Asia, as they are a hot product than in the somewhat corrupt and inefficient systems of Europe and USA, in which a few mega chain buyers decide what millions will buy.

It’s great to see FON continue to grow… I was browsing Skype and it would be great to have LA FONERA on their Shop page.

Regarding the electronics chains, it’s actually true. In Germany, for example, the two main chains, Media Markt and Saturn, are actually part of the same group. Disgusting…

YEA, comments like that will make you lots of friends

Are you deliberately trying to antagonise those who could help you the most?

Jet, we have been asked by certain retailers to give them shares in FON in exchange for them carrying our routers. Fon believes it has a great retail product, the Asians who are purely market driven in a truly competitive retail marketplace saw this, the American and European retailers who work in oligopoly environments are harder to work with but they will soon see that Fon is a great product and stop their unreasonable demands and sell our foneras.
