Barnes & Noble and HP join forces to launch specially branded online bookstore

Some Barnes & Noble nook news for your Wednesday afternoon. The giant bookstore has teamed up with HP (you know, the guys who now own Palm) to bring us the HP B&N Bookstore. It just makes things a little easier for HP folk to browse and buy B&N wares.

So what’s up? Henceforth, HP customers will find a direct link to, which looks to be an HP-branded B&N store. There doesn’t appear to be any exclusive content or anything, but I could well be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.

My guess is that this just gives B&N a little more exposure to the zillions of people who rock out to HP computers.
