Barnes & Noble turns to Samsung for latest NOOK

Barnes & Noble turns to Samsung for latest NOOK

Barnes & Noble has turned to Samsung for its latest version of the Nook experience, reports the two companies. Arriving in August, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will be a 7-inch device which will be sold online and at the nearly 700 stores across the country.

“Partnering with Samsung brings our customers great new products and evidences our commitment to our Nook customers and growing our digital content business” – Barnes & Noble Chief Executive Michael Huseby

It’s not immediately clear what Samsung gets out of the deal nor how it will differ from the standard Galaxy Tab 4 (7-inch). As some may recall, Nook tablets already have access to Google Play Store.

Will this be branded as a B&N product with pre-selected apps, games, and content? What about pricing? We’ll find out more as we get closer to the release date.
