One of the popular book stores Barnes & Noble is now ready and all set to launch a tablet in partnership with Samsung later this month. Although the previously rumored Galaxy Tab 4 Nook was said to be released in the early August but looks like there was a slight delay.
However, the two companies have now announced an event on August 20th, where you will get to see the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet's unveiling. Samsung and B&N will be hosting the event at the Barnes & Noble in Union Square, New York.
The companies' press invite doesn't provide any details about the announcement but simply mentions, "Join us as the best of both worlds come together." However, Samsung reportedly confirmed saying that the first Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will be shown at the event.
Since the iteration Galaxy Tab 4 is attached to the tablet, it would be definitely based on the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0. It will sport a 7-inch TFT screen unlike the eInk-based Nooks and features 1,280 x 800 resolution. The tablet is powered by a quad-core processor and runs Android but B&N will be swapping out TouchWiz with its own custom software.
The book retailer already has a bit of experience with Android tablets as it already has Nook HD and HD+ tablets. But this time leaving the hardware design to Samsung will surely allows Barnes & Noble to focus on its own software and Nook content sales.
It's not sure, whether the company will release the tablet in the market this month itself or not, but we expect to hear launch date and pricing details after the unveiling.
