American bookseller Barnes & Noble has confirmed plans to launch its Nook e-reader in the UK this autumn.
The company confirmed it will launch its full online store, which boasts 2.5 million digital titles, alongside its E Ink devices in October.
Barnes & Noble is yet to reveal how much the devices will cost, though the cheapest Nook e-reader currently retails for $99 (£63) in the US.
"We are proud to be able to offer our top-rated line of Nook reading devices and our award-winning digital bookstore to the discerning and highly educated consumers in the UK," said Barnes & Noble chief executive, William J Lynch.
"We're confident our award-winning technology, combined with our expansive content – including books, children's books, magazines, apps, movies and more – will bring UK customers the option they've been waiting for."
The company also confirmed plans to releases its Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight tablets in the UK in time for Christmas, ahead of the anticipated arrival of Amazon's Kindle Fire tablet.
The announcement comes just after Google released its own-brand Nexus 7 tablet in the UK. The tablet offers similar book reading services via the Google Play store and targets the same budget tablet market controlled by the Nook and Kindle Fire tablets in the US.
