But while we're all paying attention to the new gadgets B&N is already looking to the next generation. There's a new job posting on one of B&N's websites today. They're recruiting a new Director of Engineering for Windows 8. The new guy's job will be to work to integrate the nook platform with Widows 8 as well as Microsoft's other ecosystems. It's not completely clear yet what this means but one can always dream. MetroNook, anyone?
