Apparently B&N missed the fact that Amazon clearly stated, at the launch of the Kindle Fire, that it will initially support (at least) apps from Netflix, Pandora, Facebook, and Twitter
Speaking at Barnes & Noble’s store in Manhattan’s Union Square, William Lynch, the company’s chief executive, set the new Nook directly up against Amazon’s recently released Kindle Fire, promoting what he described as the Nook’s advantages in memory and multimedia capability.
“The Kindle Fire, and they do a lot of things well, is a vending machine for Amazon services,” Mr. Lynch said. “We’re going to partner with the world’s most popular music services. We’re going to let the consumers choose.”
