Barnes & Noble launches a 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook pre-loaded with $200 worth of digital content for free
It’s not the first time that Barnes & Noble and Samsung join forces to bring a Galaxy Tab tablet to the market. The retailer previously collaborated with the Korean manufacturer and launched a 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook earlier this year. Now the team is back to unveil a new and bigger slate, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1. And guess what? The device is pre-loaded with $200 worth of digital content for free.
10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook goes on sale.
The tablet’s regular price is set at $349.99, however for a limited time you can grab it with a $50 discount, that is for $299.99. The free content provided by Barnes & Noble such as books, magazines and TV episodes and worth $200 is a nice bonus. Moreover, the retailer also adds $5 starter credit. The tablet is currently available in Barnes & Noble bookstores across the US and official website.
This new tablet comes with exactly the same hardware which was used in Samsung’s standard Galaxy Tab 4. It’s the software that was tweaked and “optimized for reading and entertainment.” The device sports a 10.1-inch display with 1200 x 800 resolution and has double the storage available with previous Nook tablet, that 16GB of built-in memory expandable via microSD card up to 64 GB. That much storage should be enough for all your digital novels and audio books.
Camera options include a 3-megapixel rear snapper with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing sensor. The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Barns & Noble Nook software and is powered by quad-core Cortex A7 processor. The slate sports Wi-Fi a/b/g/n for all the downloading one would like to do and also features GPS with GLONASS for positioning. Unlike the 7-inch model which was available also in white, the 10.1-inch version comes only in black color.
The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 is in fact very similar to the earlier 7-inch version but obviously it significantly larger. The previous tablet was produced to provide consumers with the benefits of an eReader and the functionality of a normal tablet and so is the 10.1-inch model. All things considered, it seems like a must-have for book worms who want to switch traditional books for digital library.
