Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 is unveiled; tablet is available for purchase at $299.99
Back in August, Samsung and Barnes and Noble partnered up on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. The 7-inch tablet came with a low price tag of $179, and some low-end specs. Today, Barnes and Noble has introduced the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1. The larger-screened slate is now available at Barnes and Noble bookstores and online, for an introductory price of $299.99. B&N members save an additional 10%. $200 of free content is included with purchase of the device, including books, magazines, apps and television shows.

While the tablet is merely a re-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1, TouchWiz has been replaced with Nook UI. And changes have been made to the latter, which will improve the tablet's shopping experience. Navigation has also been improved to make it easier for users to move between listings, and the Nook tablets now support both portrait and landscape orientation. The updated Nook software is coming to users of the smaller Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, via an update penciled in for next month.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 features a 10.1 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800. That works out to a pixel density of 149ppi. Powering the slab is a quad-core 1.2GHz processor with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching graphics. 1.5GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage (of which, 12GB is available to the user). The 64GB capacity microSD slot offers additional memory for those who need it. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 3MP and 1.3MP, respectively, and a 6800mAh battery keeps the lights on.

One advantage that the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook range has over the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets, is the inclusion of Google Services, which means that the Nook tablets sport the Google Play Store. The Kindle Fire tablets use a forked version of Android that relies on the Amazon Appstore for downloading apps.
