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.

I would think you would take it farther than just having the app available in the app store. You might tie the activation so that when you activate your Windows RT tablet you can immediately tie it to the B&N store. As amazing as it sounds, that one little barrier of having to install the app vs having the app already on there is enough to make a large number of people to go with the default.
