Barnes & Noble announced today that the Nook will be available in the UK this fall. The book retailer will begin sell its Nook eReaders through the storefront www.nook.co.uk in mid-October.
AppNewser has more: “The store will launch with the Nook E Ink Readers — the Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight. The store will also sell eBooks, apps and digital magazines and newspapers with a catalog of more than 2.5 million titles. The company will also sell its devices at leading retailers in the UK.”
While the store opening does put Barnes and Noble in business just in time for the holiday shopping season, the book retailer is late to the game in the UK market as compared to its competition. Amazon, Kobo and Google already sell devices and eBooks in the UK.
