The new Nook is brilliant, but is B&N inadvertantly shunning British publishers?

The new Nook is brilliant, but is B&N inadvertantly shunning British publishers?

If you are excited about the new Nook, colour and touch screen, then a word of warning. If you happen to be a UK based publisher then you may be in for a shock. Unlike Kindle, Apple, Kobo and others it seems that B&N doesn't want you providing content for their devices?

Unless someone can tell us different, we have been unsuccessful so far setting up access for our 60+ books that are in ebook format for the Nook. Why? Well, a US bank account is mandatory for you to be able to supply B&N. Come on chaps, the others worked that one out within a few weeks of setting up their 'global' platforms.

What do B&N have to say about it? No response so far to all the enquiries. Also a characteristic of the early days of the other platforms. Can anyone out there help?
