Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook: eBook Reading Tablet Goes Official

The U.S based retailer is marketing the device as a reading device, as the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook comes pre-installed with Nook apps. One big advantage of the Samsung-made Galaxy Tab 4 Nook over the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7 is its ability to access Google Play store. The latter tablet, however, uses native app store with a limited selection of apps.

The e-book focused tablet features a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels. The slate is powered by a quad-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a micro SD card slot. The tablet runs on Android 4.4. 

The tablet is designed for reading e-books on the go. It has custom Barnes & Noble software, rather than Samsung's TouchWiz. The Tab 4 Nook will also come with $200 (about Rs. 12, 400, approximately) of content from Barnes & Noble, including free books, magazines, and TV episodes.

There's no update as when Samsung will launch the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet in India. The current-generation Galaxy Tab 4 can be purchased at Rs. 15,000 in India. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
