Samsung Nook tablet

Barnes & Noble is continuing its hardware partnership with Samsung, announcing the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook on Wednesday. The new $299 (after $50 instant rebate) 10.1-inch tablet follows a 7-inch version released in August for $180.  Improved Nook software comes with the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook and will be made available for the smaller model in November. Barnes & Noble says that the most requested feature in a larger device is part of the slate, which has both a 3- and 1.3-megapixel camera. Given the specs and price, I think most Nook readers are better served by purchasing a more capable tablet and simply installing the Nook software on it.

“Given the specs and price, I think most Nook readers are better served by purchasing a more capable tablet and simply installing the Nook software on it.”

Except that the installable Nook software does not offer all the capabilites that the ‘baked in’ Nook software does. If you want full access to all the Nook content, you need a Nook.

Fair point, David. Are those extra features worth that particular $299 tablet when there are so many other choices on the market? It’s an individual decision, of course, with no right or wrong answer.
