Nook headed for UK as Barnes & Noble goes international, dabbles in the Queen's English

Well, our English friends, today is a good day. Your choice in e-readers is about to get that much better as Barnes & Noble has decided to make your homeland the first stop on its highly-anticipated international tour. The Nook and its associated store will be making their big debut in the UK this October, though how exactly the prices will translate to British Pounds remains to be seen. At first, only the Nook Simple Touch and its Glow Light-equipped sibling will be available through the storefront, but we imagine it won't be long before the company's line of Android tablets make their own splash in the land of tea and James Bond. The ebook store will be launching with a rather respectable catalog of over 2.5 million titles, which should give the new comer a nice running start. You'll find PR after the break, but sadly it's a bit light on finer details. Don't worry, though, we'll be back with more info as we get it.Continue reading Nook headed for UK as Barnes & Noble goes international, dabbles in the Queen's EnglishNook headed for UK as Barnes & Noble goes international, dabbles in the Queen's English originally appeared on Engadget on Mon, 20 Aug 2012 07:51:00 EDT.
