Barnes & Noble's new CEO to tackle Nook issue

New Barnes & Noble (BKS +2.7%) CEO Michael Huseby gives an early peek at his thinking on what the company should do with Nook in an interview with the WSJ.

The exec says the company is "dedicated" to providing consumers the digital devices, but notes the company will look to leverage costs with an outside partnership. That last part could mean that B&N is open to letting a consumer electronics manufacturer build the devices for the company.

Husbey says the ultimate goal is to "de-risk" the business plan.
