Microsoft Nook Deal: Winners & Losers (Update 1)
There have always been concerns about Amazon's margins for the Kindle Fire at the $199 price point. It's generally believed that Amazon sells the product at breakeven or a loss, though the online retail giant has not confirmed the cost of making the tablet, nor how many it sells. A strong partnership between Microsoft and Barnes & Noble may lead to a price war, which would further pressure Amazon's razor-thin margins.
