To no one's great surprise, B&N is hastening its retrograde advance from the Nook tablet and eBook device.
ReadersFirst has no stake in the success or failure of any commercial device, but, ever the cheerful optimists--Pollyanna with a love of APIs--we wish to point out that Nooks of all sorts should still work with most library eBook platforms. Any apps should not disappear. E-Ink devices should still work with the cumbersome (but at least effective) sideloading method. Not feeling the love from corporate America? Why not give your local library eBook collection a try!
Anyone want to place a wager on when B&N's Nook support is off the books?
