Just When You Thought Barnes and Nobles was out of the Tablet Business!

Barnes and Noble has partnered with Samsung to create the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet. What's great about this table is it uses the Google Play Store and comes with the Nook app built in. The Galaxy Tab closest in scale to the average book so it makes reading on it easy.
Instead of overlaying the bookstore like the Nook Color and Nook HD tablets had, you access all Barnes and Nobles items through a collection of Nook-branded apps:
  • Highlights – the catchall for your notes and highlights from your reading
  • Library – All of your titles, from books to magazines.
  • Search – Search your titles or the shop.
  • Shop – Books, magazines, movies, TV, Apps, and more!
  • Settings – access the nuts and bolts of your Nook account, and change the way the reading software behaves.
  • Today – Recommendations based on your shopping and reading activity in the Nook apps.
  • Apps – A handy place to find apps for your Nook (including the OverDrive Media Console App).
So if you are looking to buy a tablet this holiday for yourself or as a gift, take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet (Retails for $179.99 ) and get free eBooks, eAudio books, magazines and movies from the library.
