Barnes & Noble to hold UK nook event

Barnes and Noble is expected to launch the ono in the UK

US eBook retailer Barnes & Noble is hosting a developer workshop in London later this month, prompting speculation the company will shortly launch its nook reader in the UK.

Previous speculation has centred around B&N partnering with Waterstones to sell the nook in the UK

The free NOOK Developer Workshop is being held on March 19th, ahead of an evening session on the future of tablets.

The booking page for the event says the workshop “will deep dive into all the technical aspects to help you distribute your apps on NOOK tablets and cover the entire development process — from app creation to app submission.”
