Microsoft Looking to ‘redefine reading as we know it’ (Barnes & Noble)August 29, 2012 1 Comment
Microsoft is looking to ‘redefine reading as we know it’ as it notes in a recent job listing.
We are a V1 team passionate about helping shape and deliver the vision for “active reading” in a world of modern content. Text, media, and interactive elements are coming together to redefine reading as we know it. Microsoft Office Division has big plans in this area and our team is creating innovative V1 products and services that delight active readers. The recent partnership we announced with Barnes & Noble is a strong indication of our commitment to the reading space.
As you can see they not only mention the Microsoft Office Division but Barnes & Noble as well. We aren’t sure of what Microsoft is actually up to but here are some attempts at cracking the code.
It could be:
- an ebook storefront for Windows 8 devices
- Nook hardware
- ebook publishing tool.
- ‘Moorea’ a multimedia note taking app (Courier tablet)
We should know soon enough as Windows 8 comes into view.
