Barnes & Noble is not part of Microsoft's announcement

Barnes & Noble has confirmed today that it is not part of Microsoft's mysterious news conference tonight at 7PM EST.
When asked, a B&N spokesperson frankly said "we are not participating."

There had been speculation that Microsoft was introducing a new tablet/e-reader along with their partner B&N to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire and the alleged upcoming Google Nexus tablet.

Microsoft has invested $300 million to become a large stake holder in the book chain's digital content subsidiary.

We will have coverage of the event at 7PM.

So B&N is spared from receiving the Microsoft kiss of death for the time being.
