Microsoft and Barnes & Noble are not going to announce a joint tablet venture.  According to theverge.com, Barnes & Noble has reached out to the press to subdue speculations that they are involved in Microsoft’s major announcement.

We’re only hours away from what may be the biggest Microsoft related news of the year, or the biggest PR flop.  Either way, Barnes & Noble will not be a part of the hype and a spokesperson for them has specifically stated that “we are not part of their announcement.”

If the announcement has something to do with hardware, who else can possibly be Microsoft’s mistress?
