September 26, 2012
Barnes & Noble has released details of its new Nook HD range of Android tablets, which are aimed squarely at Amazon's Kindle Fire HD line and Google's Nexus 7.

Microsoft and Barnes & Noble to announce tablet with Xbox Live streaming

June 18, 2012

As you may have already heard, Microsoft will host a special media event later today, and, while the company has not revealed what product it plans to release, the word on the street was that Redmond will introduce its first in-house built Windows tablet today. But that no longer seems to be the case anymore.

A later TechCrunch report revealed that the unnamed device is a joint Microsoft-Barnes & Noble production and therefore it may not be based on Windows RT / Windows 8:

Both the Wrap and ATD claim the event will showcase a Microsoft built Windows RT/Windows 8 tablet. According to folks with knowledge of the situation, they’re [...]

Microsoft sides with Barnes & Noble to tackle Amazon and Apple, to invest $605 million in B&N

May 1, 2012

GoodEreader

Though Microsoft is no stranger to patent battles of its own, the company isn’t shy of reaching a win-win settlement with other corporations. It looks like Redmond just killed two birds with one stone when it decided to jump into the e-book market by investing in Barnes & Noble’s Nook reader, while settling its patent lawsuit against the e-reader company.

Announced yesterday, the deal between Microsoft and Barnes & Noble Inc. sees Microsoft getting 17.6% share of the newly established e-book and college book business unit, in exchange for $300 million, which will leave B&N as the majority shareholder with $1.4 billion. Over the next five years, [...]

Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight announced, to go on sale on May 1 for $139

April 13, 2012

Even though Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet has been clearly overshadowed by Amazon’s Kindle Fire, the basic Nook e-readers are still on top of  the shopping and wish lists of many users. However, the e-ink gadget was clearly in need of a refresh, as the Nook Simple Touch, the second generation of e-book readers from Barnes & Noble, was released almost a year ago. Fortunately, we don’t have to wait much more for a new and improved Nook Simple Touch, as the latest model has just gone up for pre-order, with shipments set to start on May 1.

The new Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight is pretty much the same as the old Simple Touch, with one very important upgrade. As [...]

Report: Global E-Book Shipments To Drop 77% During Q1 2012

March 5, 2012

A recent report from the prestigious DigiTimes Research claims that global shipment volumes of e-book readers will drop during the first quarter of 2012 to an estimate of 2 million units. During the fourth quarter of 2011, global e-book shipments reached the impressive figure of 9 million units. Simple math tells us that’s a 77% quarter over quarter decrease in shipments. Is the e-book reader industry dead and gone? Not by far!

During 2011, almost 23 million ebooks were shipped, 9 million of which in the last quarter alone, so it’s safe to assume that the end-of-the-year holiday season heavily contributed to the increase in sales & shipments during Q4 of 2011. But [...]
