Microsoft on Monday said it will pay $300 million to get a piece of Barnes & Noble's Nook tablet action for the Windows 8 platform. The two companies will partner in a new Barnes & Noble subsidiary which will push further into the education market. Barnes & Noble will initially create a Nook app for Windows 8.
Barnes & Noble announced today that it will be bringing its Nook products and digital content to the UK. The E-Ink based Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight will be the first two devices in the initial launch in the UK. That’s not all either– according to the UK Nook website, the Nook Tablet is coming soon as well.
