The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook was first presented to the public in the month of June. Samsung teamed up with Barnes & Noble in order to create this new device. Barnes & Noble have started to send invitations to press members for an even they intend to host on the 20th of August 2014. Their motto for the event? “Join us as the best of both worlds come together.” This obviously points out that the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is going to be unveiled in the New York store belonging to the company mentioned above.
It is true that the invitations had no specific mention of the Tab 4 Nook. However, it is not difficult to guess what the event is going to be about, especially since Barnes & Noble have announced that the tablet will hit the stores in the first days of the month of August. Unfortunately, the tablet did not arrive at the promised date. The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will be equipped with a 7 inch screen and it will function on Nook software based on Android.
The gadget will come with a screen having a resolution of 1280×800. There will also be a front-facing camera having three megapixels. The rear shooter will also be present, having 1.3 MP. The storage of the device is equal to eight gigabytes, but it can be expanded to thirty-two gigabytes with the help of a micro SD slot. The processor is of the quad-core type, having a power of 1.2 gigahertz.
The device was first sold for the price of 200 US dollars but now it is available on famous e-commerce sites like Amazon and Best Buy for the price of 180 US dollars. However, nobody knows anything about the price of the Nook gadget. The question is if Barnes & Nobles are going to sell the device cheaper than the Galaxy Tab 4 or are they going to keep the same price. However, it would be difficult to convince customers to purchase a tablet functioning on Barnes & Nobles software which has the same price as Galaxy Tab 4 running on KitKat.
The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will probable hit the stores soon after its unveiling on the 20th of August. This is the first gadget that resulted from Samsung making partners with Barnes&Nobles. In the month of June 2013, Barnes&Nobles declared that was ready to start its collaboration with third-party producers for the creation of Nook gadgets. However, in the month of August 2013, the company said that had in plans to produce its own gadgets. In February 2014, the company announced its collaboration with some very important players on the smart phone market in order to start the production of devices running on Nook.
The partnership with Samsung was announced in the month of June. The company has also made public its intention to divide its physical retail and the Nook business in two different entities. However, this news should be treated with caution since it is the second time that the company makes and announcement as such.
