Microsoft on Monday declined to say whether Barnes and Noble's Nook app for Metro will be embedded into Windows 8 or Windows RT.
Earlier in the day, Microsoft announced it was investing $300 million
to acquire a 17.6% stake in a new Barnes & Noble subsidiary that
will include the bookseller's digital Nook and College business.
Microsoft also guaranteed Barnes & Noble additional payments of $305
million over the next five years.
As part of the deal, Barnes & Noble will develop a Metro app for the Nook to run on Windows 8 and Windows RT.
