Default Newco

Newco will also develop a Nook app for Windows 8, as Amazon has done for its Kindle ebook reader platform. That said, one has to believe such an app would have been created regardless. The bigger deal, perhaps, is the possibility that Newco will abandon the use of Android in its Nook devices and move to Windows. A publicly presented Microsoft slide previously listed an ebook reader as a Windows 8 device type alongside traditional PCs, laptops and ultrabooks, tablets, and slates. At the time, it seemed like a curious inclusion. But the sweeping deal with Barnes & Noble might put that in perspective.
