Barnes and Noble to Discontinue Windows App

I'm assuming this will only affect their online reader. I don't use Nook for PC anyway.

I'm hoping this isn't the end of the Nook.

IMO, the really interesting bit of the announcement is the "Microsoft Consumer Reader". It looks like Microsoft want to get back into the ebook game by releasing an ebook reading application, presumably for Windows.

And it sounds like it will become the default app for use with the B&N ebook store.

Now this article has me confused:

The change in language does not relieve B&N from created e-bookstores in 10 countries, something a spokesperson said B&N will accomplish by the end of April.
This paragraph has me lost. I'm hoping this means they're adding new countries.

B&N have to stop producing their own Windows ebook reading application, but they must set up online ebook stores in 10 countries, presumably for use by physical nooks and this new Windows application from Microsoft.

Thank you for the explanation. With the word 'created', I took it as bookstores opened in the past.

I assume the new B&N website that will be launched next month will have international support. Just like Amazon.com for countries without their own Amazon store.

XBOX services are integrated into Windows 8. That's where their streaming music and videos are at. It makes sense that books would become a part of this.

I've been waiting for B&N to sell ebooks in Russia ever since I've bought my ST. They might've had some of my money that went Kobo way even before I've switched to Aura HD.
