Fusible has discovered that B&N registered a new website address recently, which is their cue to jump to the obvious conclusion:
Please don’t get too excited; the answer is almost certainly no.
There are 2 things you need to know about Fusible. The first is that they jump to this conclusion every time they find a newly registered website address. And the second is that they have never been right about any of the gadget rumors they’ve started.While one or 2 have been used by someone, none have been used for device.
But what’s even more interesting is that Fusible has missed quite a few domains that B&N, Amazon, and other companies have actually used for their products. For example, NookTablet, nookcolor, nooktouch, and kindlefire all managed to slip by Fusible without anyone noticing. In fact, Fusible has such a high miss rate and such a low success rate that I would be willing to put money down against any of their predictions.
BTW, B&N has not registered any new trademarks for the Nook Glow or the Nook Shine. While this alone doesn’t maen they won’t use the terms, it does men that there is a marked lack of evidence that B&N plans to use it.
