NOOK Simple Touch

B&N’s UK NOOK offerings will kick off in mid-October. The press releases says the NOOK Simple Touch readers with E Ink displays will be the first to launch in the UK — but it the NOOK UK website shows pictures of the NOOK Tablet and NOOK apps for mobile devices, suggesting that they may not be the last.

This is the first time B&N will be offering NOOK products outside the US.
