UK high street book retailer Waterstone’s has announced that the company is working on its own eBook reader which it intends to launch in 2012, and it would appear the companies move is inspired by the success of Barnes & Noble’s Nook eReader range.
The companies Managing Director, James Daunt recently spoke to the BBC, and explained why they want to produce their own eReader.
We in Waterstone’s need to offer you a digital reader which is at least as good, and preferably substantially better, than that of our Internet rival, and you will have a much better buying experience purchasing your books through us.
There are no details as yet on what sort of hardware the new Waterstone’s eBook reader will feature, and also no details on who the company has teamed up with to manufacture it.
