Expanding its Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook line-up, Barnes & Noble has announced the launch of 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook in the United States. This co-branded tablet is essentially a normal Galaxy Tab 4, however it sports a user-interface from Barnes & Noble, which is designed to be reading and entertainment friendly.
The tablet has been priced at $299.99 and can now be grabbed online or from over 650 B&N stores across US. The retailer is also bundling content worth $200 with each Tab 4 Nook 10.1, which includes books, movies and magazines.
The Barnes & Noble Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 features a 10.1-inch 1280x800p display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, Android 4.4 and Wi-Fi connectivity.
“With the launch of the new large screen Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, we have a fantastic lineup of devices for our customers to choose from as we head into the holiday gifting season. Customers are telling us that they love the reading and entertainment experience on our new 7-inch Samsung NOOK and we’re certain that the addition of the stunning 10-inch model, alongside our popular NOOK GlowLight™ eReader, will ensure that there’s a perfect device for everyone in the family at Barnes & Noble this holiday season and beyond,” said Michael P. Huseby, Chief Executive Officer of Barnes & Noble, Inc.
