What if the rumored 'Microsoft tablet' isn't a Windows tablet? | ZDNet

Insightful analysis from Mary-Jo Foley; it'll be fascinating if Microsoft (along with B&N and a hardware OEM) opts to directly challenge Amazon's Kindle business
"If such a “reader” were more akin to the Kindle Fire than to an iPad, a Los Angeles launch might make sense. Think this through. A Kindle Fire is an entertainment/consumption device. It is great for movie watching and music listening (hello, LA!) It also lets you read books (hello, Barnes & Noble). And remember: The settlement/contract between B&N and Microsoft mentioned Windows Phone. A lot. (In between all the redactions in that document.)"
