PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Barnes & Noble is spinning off its Nook e-reader business into a new company - which will be a cooperation with Microsoft. Redmond will invest $300 million into the new company, and on top of that, the two companies have settled the patent litigation, which was part of Microsoft's string of mafia practices against Android vendors. I have a sneaking suspicion this will be the end of the line for the Android-based Nook e-readers and tablets. Get 'm while supplies last.

No doubt.

I can see Microsoft doing this simply because just as Windows RT is about to head out the door, it's already mostly irrelevant considering the sharp contrast between it and the capabilities of the x86 version of Windows. Not to mention the steep rise in "tablet-level" performance we are seeing.

Someone should teach Microsoft to not point guns at their own feet.
