by Curtis Lee Fulton
Barnes & Noble subsidiary Nook, Inc. says it’s partnered with mobile payment startup Fortumo to make in-app purchases work from the Nook eReader in the weeks ahead. Once the widgetry is in place, developers can sell digital content from their apps through the Nook Store at nook.com. Fortumo says its payment technology works in 73 countries. Intel Capital and Greycroft Partners are both investors in the startup.
