Samsung and Barnes & Noble are joining forces to build co-branded tablets.
That’s right, the result of this partnership will mean you’ll be able to buy a co-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet, meshing Samsung’s hardware with customized Nook software. This means you’ll get a reading-focused Android tablet that directs you to Barnes & Noble’s arsenal of three million digital books, magazines and newspapers.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Last June, we reported that Barnes & Noble was ceasing to make its own Nook tablets, moving to a partner-centric model instead. Though that hasn’t stopped its competitors from launching their own tablets designed for bookworms.
It’s expected that the 7-inch tablet will arrive in the US some time in August, and will be sold alongside standard Nook e-readers at Barnes & Noble’s bookstores.
In related news, Barnes & Noble has also announced that its Nook Media division is moving from Palo Alto to new facilities in Santa Clara. The flit will happen by the end of Q1 2015.
