Look, Ma--No Nook!

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?
