Microsoft's patents being worthless, they still have piles of cash, they spend $300 Million to lure Barnes & Noble into making a "subsidiary", which basically probably means to be a Windows 8 based Tablet effort and hooks for getting E books onto the Windows ecosystem.

There again, Microsoft uses their bogus patent attacks against Android to try to force all Android device makers into also making Windows devices.

seriously, there are now two alternatives: microsoft forces them to make win8 tablets as you state. which would basically kill the product (see the acquisition of the danger guys: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/press/2008/feb08/02-11acquisition.aspx ) the other alternative is to add nook software to the standard accessories of windows and thus plant the software in any tablet / pc. that would reflect the internet-explorer-killing-netscape strategy. this one could work.
 
Making love with Microsoft never have been satisfactory.
See: Sega.
