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.

i haven't personally tried Win8 beta but I do like the ease of the Win7.5 mobile. A co-worker has the Lumina900 and it is a very nice phone. I didn't spend more than 10 minutes with it before I had to give it back unfortunately.

While I think they're getting to the train station a little too late, I wouldn't be surprised if Windows eats up the remainder of the business RIM has as well as a small % of Android/iOS users.

let's face it, simple is nice at times.

I've never tried a Windows phone and swore I'd never own a Bing-search phone. I like their wall paper, but they suck when it comes to searching. Based on what I've seen on TV of the Windows phone, I'll stick with Android.
