Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook: The First Android e-Reader

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook that was launched recently was the first full-features Android tablet that was designed for reading.

Instead of the Google Play or Samsung Hub installed on this tablet, you will get the Barnes & Noble Store pre-installed. This is no surprise as this tablet is a tie-up between Samsung and the US bookseller Barnes & Noble.

At $179 we think it is quite affordable too, especially as it comes with $200 of free Nook content. With this tablet one also gets lots of freebies: books, trail subscriptions to magazines and free episodes of TV shows.

Samsung has not compromised on the hardware. The screen is the same as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 - 7-inch screen with 216 ppi, the 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1.5GB of RAM, 3MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera.

Currently the Nook has only released in the United States. Will you prefer this tablet over the Kindle of the Nook? Answer in comments.
