In the world of the tablet, it’s not every day that two former tablet computer competitors team up to take on the big boys. Yet Barnes and Noble, the struggling book retailer whose Nook bravely took on both Apple and Amazon, and Samsung, the Android-powered competior, have decided to work together on a very special project. That project would be a tablet computer, of course. B&N and Samsung have teamed up for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, a co-branded tablet computer that combines the best of both worlds.
Here’s the skinny on the tablet. It’s a standard Samsung Galaxy Tab, but it taps into B&N’s impressive Nook network for books, videos, and apps, while not locking out Google apps like Maps and Chrome. The device features a 7-inch, 1,280-by-800-pixel display. There are two cameras, a 3-megapixel camera in the rear and 1.3-megapixel selfie camera. There’s 8GB of storage on the device and a Micro SD card capable of taking a Micro SD card with 32GB of extra storage. It comes in black or white color schemes, and it features over $200 worth of freebies courtesy of Barnes and Noble.
