Barnes & Noble e-books are coming to town

B&N announced yesterday that beginning around Dec. 1, Canadian customers will have access to the U.S. retailer’s e-book store and will be able to download titles to their iPhones, BlackBerrys, etc. However, B&N’s own e-reader, the Nook, will remain unavailable in Canada.

From B&N’s website:

We are not selling Nook in Canada (or anywhere outside of the United States) at this time. If you’re using a Nook in Canada, you will be able to sync your B&N eBooks library and access our eBook store via Wi-Fi.

We know there’s an incredible interest from readers who want to buy them from our eBook store outside the United States, and we are looking at our options for international sales.
