Well it looks like Barnes & Noble will not play a role in Microsoft’s press conference in Los Angeles today. Numerous reports surfaced over the weekend suggesting that the two companies had partnered up on a new Nook tablet that would possibly run Windows 8 RT and have integrated Xbox Live features, but a new report this morning suggests otherwise. According to Business Insider, following-up on a report from Dow Jones Newswires, has confirmed that Barnes & Noble will not have a presence at today’s event. So, what will be unveiled? It’s still possible Microsoft will announce its own tablet, just not in partnership with the book retailer. We’ll be reporting live from the event so stay tuned for more news as it breaks.
