  1. I truly don’t understand why B&N hasn’t been able to do more. With Microsoft’s money, they should have kicked b*tt in the holiday season. With a 2 year lead in small tablets (counting the Nook Color), they should own this space. So, yeah, I’m rooting for MS and B&N to give Apple and Amazon some competition but I’m not sure new specs offer the answer. As the article points out, the problem with the Nook tablet isn’t the specs… they’re good. The problem is, B&N isn’t selling enough.
