Well, since that posting events have continued apace. In the last day or two the UK book-store has been launched, quietly and efficiently, on this URL. It looks like the full library of books that are available in the US are listed here, as far as I can tell. I'm certainly aware that the full Smashwords catalogue has been ported across, including my own books.
From what I can see the search engine is slick and intuitive. More importantly, the company has announced the device line up, which is pretty much the same as I suggested a week ago, but has added two important extra pieces of information. The first is that the two tablets in the range, the 7" and 9" Nook HDs, are now slated for launch with a firm date: 22 November.
For me, the most interesting of the tablets is the 9" Nook HD - I need to explore the spec in more detail and the ominous sounding 'from £229' doesn't fill me with competitive confidence, but on pure looks it wins already.
