Would you buy a Windows 8 Metro UI style e-reader? I would, if the price was right. It would have to be very competitive to make it a must-buy. As a strict e-reader, it has to do it right. It has to be very easy to find books, buy them, transfer and read them. It should be as simple as possible. Metro UI can be simple, but it can also be way too much for a simple e-reader. I wouldn’t pay any more for a Windows powered e-reader than a Nook or a Kindle. Tablets are completely different – e-readers would be a black and white e-ink powered device. I’m just not sure they can pull it off. Microsoft seems very stiff on keeping the Windows price high and not budging. This could be their losing point on the tablet and e-reader market.
