Microsoft needs a Kindle-killer

Microsoft may have revealed its iPad killer but what is the software giant cooking up to beat Amazon's Kindle?

Microsoft has announced a new entry into the tablet parade, dubbed Surface, which is hardly a major revelation given the rumor Red Carpet that now precedes any such tech announcement. It’s a purty-lookin device with the sorts of lines and angles reserved for roadsters and remodeled Craftsman homes. The slick cover-cum-keyboard is yet another tool to enhance our productivity during our  18 waking hours and the Gorilla glass screen is ideal for watching  HD reruns  of “The Suite Life of Zach and Cody” on Netflix.

But where are the books, magazines and other publisher content? And while Microsoft didn’t play many of its content/app cards, the Microsoft-Barnes & Noble-Nokia ménage à trios demand some explanation or at least speculation.
