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.

If Windows RT sales are cannibalized by Windows x86 sales, Microsoft won't care in the least, a Windows license is a Windows license, they make money either way.

Windows NT was once available for Alpha, MIPS and PowerPC processors, and when x86 overtook everything else and took over, MS happily killed them, it simplifies things greatly, only one product to support, not 2 or 4.
