London event sponsored by Barnes and Noble suggests UK entry for Nook

US retailer Barnes & Noble is to sponsor an event for developers in London on 19 March, raising speculation about a spring entry of its digital reader the Nook into the UK and Europe.

The event will be hosted by Mobile Monday London and will feature a panel discussion with B&N director of developer relations Claudia Romanini, a workshop for Nook developers and a 90-minute “networking” period.

Earlier this year, B&N confirmed its plans to bring the Nook overseas and said it was considering spinning off its digital business from its main book retail venture. Rumours have been rife regarding a possible link-up between B&N and Waterstones.
