Samsung is always looking for new ways to market its products and promoting its latest 7-inch slate through the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook edition could be a viable way to gain the attention of avid readers. As you’ve probably guessed by now, the device is nothing more than a variant which comes bundled with the Nook software from Barnes & Noble.
According to the company, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will provide users with access to B&N’s wide catalog of books, magazines and newspapers, not that you couldn’t get these features otherwise. On the upside, the slate will come with customized Nook software. It isn’t clear whether TouchWiz will be replaced with the book seller’s own UX or they will co-exist. Where design and hardware are concerned, the slate will be no different from the 7-inch model in the aforementioned series.
Additionally, there’s no information on whether the tablet will have cellular support or stick to Wi-Fi only. The device features a WXGA 1280 x 800p display and a design that’s quite similar to the Galaxy S5’s. It comes preloaded with Android 4.4 KitKat and if TouchWiz is present, tools such as Multi Windows will be onboard. A quad core processor powers it up and the device can deliver up to 10 hours of continuous video playback on a single charge of the 4000mAh battery.
Key features of the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0:
– Android 4.4 KitKat
– 7-inch WXGA LCD touchscreen
– 1.5GB RAM, 8GB storage, 64GB expandable
– 1.2GHz quad core processor
– 4000mAh battery
– 1.3MP front camera, 3MP rear snapper
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will be available in the US early August through Barnes & Noble bookstores and online. No price has been provided for the same as yet.
