We heard last year that UK books retailer Waterstones would be launching their own eBook reader in 2012 to take on the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook.
Now it looks like Waterstones has decided against releasing their own eBook reader, and instead will offer Amazon’s Kindle for sales at their book stores around the UK.
“The best digital readers, the Kindle family, will be married to the singular pleasures of browsing a curated bookshop.
With the combination of our talents we can offer the exceptional customer proposition to which we both aspire.”
It is not clear as yet why Waterstones decided against making their own digital eReader and decided to offer Amazon’s Kindle eReader for sale instead.
