Samsung and Barnes & Noble announce Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK

Samsung and Barnes & Noble today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, a co-branded tablet that brings together a 7-inch Samsung tablet with NOOK’s reading technology and content. The U.S. bookseller previously released its own NOOK tablets and e-readers but exited the market after sales failed to meet expectations. The partnership with Samsung lets it get back into the market with a partner that only know tablets well but will also presumably shoulder some of the costs associated with such a venture.

“The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK is the most advanced NOOK ever, delivering the great NOOK experience our customers have come to love, with the high-performance tablet features they’ve asked for,” said Michael P. Huseby, Chief Executive Officer of Barnes & Noble, Inc. “We invite reading and entertainment fans to visit their local Barnes & Noble store to experience the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK. Once they do, we’re certain they will make this innovative device part of their daily routine.”
