Nook line to expand to U.K. with mid-October launch
Barnes & Noble says U.K. customers will be able to buy the Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, though e-reader pricing is still under wraps.
Barnes & Noble will for the first time expand its Nook business internationally.
The company announced today that its e-readers and digital bookstore will be launching in the U.K. in mid-October. At that time, customers will be able to access the company's e-books, as well as purchase either its Nook Simple Touch or Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight.
As with its service in the U.S., Barnes & Noble will let U.K.-based customers read titles on their Nook or "mobile and computing devices."
Barnes & Noble did not say whether its Nook Tablet will be made available in the U.K.
That wasn't the only omission in the announcement. The company failed to say exactly when its Nook service and e-readers will launch and did not provide any pricing.
Barnes & Noble declined CNET's request for comment.
