Microsoft will not be announcing a tablet made by Barnes & Noble today, despite a report to the contrary.Dow Jones reports that the speculation that Barnes & Noble is a part of today’s announcement is “not true at all.” (We saw this nugget from our Bloomberg terminal. When a full version of the Dow Jones story is up, we’ll link to it.)
The Barnes & Noble report never made sense to us for two reasons.
Two: Microsoft and Barnes & Noble announced their partnership on April 30. It’s unlikely they’ve already sketched out a new tablet together already.
We’ll be covering the big announcement as soon as it hits, so stay tuned to SAI all day long.
UPDATE: A Barnes & Noble spokesperson has confirmed it will have nothing to do with today’s event.
