With the revelation that Windows 8 intends to support a resolution of 1024 x 768 — basically what Apple gave us with the iPad 1 and 2 and the iPad Mini — it’s clear that the future of Barnes & Noble’s Nook Media is with Windows RT, not Android.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a color Nook device, don’t waste your money.
If you already have a color Nook device and have been thinking of loading up on apps from the Nook App Store, don’t waste your money.
Android is dead at Nook Media. Its future is Windows RT.
It’s now crystal clear what William Lynch meant when he said:
We’re not going to continue doing what we’re doing.
That means Android is toast at Nook Media.
And this means the future is now Windows RT:
As the market goes to more multi-function tablets, we have to look at how we offer functionality differently and that’s what we’re focused on now.
No wonder Lynch has been mum about the change of course he’s been plotting. If people knew the truth, all Nook sales would drop to zero.
But now you know the truth. Don’t be a sucker.
And don’t hold your breath for Lynch to order the unlocking of Android on all of those orphaned Nook tablets.
