Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook Releases Tomorrow, Costs $179
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook e-reader will be available at Barnes & Noble stores tomorrow, according to sources speaking to The Digital Reader. While it is likely that there will be special offers to start, the Tab 4 Nook is expected to cost $179 at full retail.
The Barnes & Noble sources speaking to The Digital Reader's Nate Hoffelder claim that the stores will be reset tonight until tomorrow morning so that the Tab 4 Nook will be available to customers as soon as stores open.
With a 7-inch screen, the Tab 4 Nook has the same specs as the regular Tab 4. We learned Barnes & Noble and Samsung were teaming up last year for an ebook device after a Nook app did especially well. The Tab 4 Nook is a full-featured, full-flavored Samsung tablet, but with an eye towards ebooks. The tablet will focus on easy access to B&N's expansive digital library of books and magazines.
The bookseller reportedly committed to buying at least a million units from the South Koreans. They also will release a 10-inch screen tablet based on Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, according to reports. That bigger screened tablet is due to come out in two months.
B&N released a video teaser trailer (emphasis on tease) featuring bestselling author James Patterson and a bunch of bespectacled millennials playing with the device. Watch it below, and pick up your own tomorrow.
