Barnes & noble, unlike the other book giant, the amazon, doesn’t have a hardware division where it can produce the eBook readers such as the kindle paperwhite. So to push its ambition further, it partnered with Samsung to make those reading devices. The Tab E Nook tablet is focused on providing a significant reading environment and to do this, Barnes & noble will bring their online store of magazines, books, comics and child fiction to the Tab E Nook tablet.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the nook table is a capable midrange tablet. it has a beautiful 9.6-inch screen that can reproduce paper like picture for reading purposes and has a fabric like back. A 5 MP shooter on the back and 2mp on the front are ample. A micro SD card slot to expand the memory for media consumption is made available. Samsung has also incorporated the multi window for multi-tasking. The nook profile will enable you to share books with family members. Samsung is also preloading the Microsoft’s office applications onto the device for productivity.
With this nook tablet, you can access 4 million books, newspapers and nook magazines right on the screen. The device will retail for $249. Barnes & noble have also started an exchange program, “Trade in, Trade Up”. This programs will effectively take in your old tablet such as the iPad, fire tablet and other android tablets and give you a credit of $200.
The tablet is light enough to use in the long reading sessions and offers 3 free books and 3 magazines from the Barnes extensive catalogue.
“We’re excited to give our customers even more ways to experience reading and entertainment with the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E Nook and its spacious large display,” said Fred Argir, chief digital officer at Barnes & Noble, in a statement.
