Barnes & Noble to Offer Nook in Britain

Aug 20, 2012

Barnes & Noble announced it will be offering its popular e-reader, Nook, to customers in Britain. According to the New York Times, this move will put Nook in direct international competition with Amazon's Kindle, which has been available in Britain for a few years.

When the Nook is released in Britain, users will have more than 2.5 million book, magazine, and newspaper titles to choose from. The company is looking to release black-and-white e-readers upon initial launch in October while holding off on the color tablet.
