Samsung announces Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablets, the first one should be launched in August

Samsung today announced its very first line of co-branded tablets, called Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. As you’ve probably guessed, the new tablets are made in collaboration with Barnes & Noble - which stopped manufacturing its own slates a while ago, but recently said that it would keep the Nook brand alive thanks to “world-class hardware partners.” Well, it turns out that Samsung is one of those partners.

The first Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet (pictured on the left) is expected to be released in the US in August, and seems to be based on the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 that’s already available to buy for $199.99. The device will offer customized Nook software, providing “easy access to Barnes & Noble’s expansive digital collection of more than three million books, leading magazines and newspapers.” Customers will be able to find Galaxy Tab 4 Nook slates at Barnes & Nobles bookstores across the US, as well as online at

It’s not clear how much the first Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet will cost, but we guess its price won’t be too different from the price of the regular Tab 4 7.0. 

So, what do you think, is a Nook reading experience on a Galaxy Tab something to look forward to?
