Barnes & Noble is back with another co-branded tablet built by Samsung, and this time it's the Galaxy Tab A Nook. The 7-inch tablet is simply a rebrand of the Tab A which was released back in March which features some pretty average specs, but easily enough to satisfy the device's main task as an e-reader:
- 7-inch 1280 x 800 TFT display
- Samsung Exynos 3475 SoC running at 1.3GHz
- 8GB of storage (MicroSD card slot expandable up to 200GB)
- 1.5GB of RAM
- Android 5.1
The Tab A Nook comes with all of the usual Nook features including the digital store, newsstand, and B&N Readouts, which delivers a selection of quick reads to your device every day. The Galaxy Tab A Nook will retail for $139, but current Nook owners who want the new device can get it for $99 by showing proof of purchase of a Nook device or by trading in their current one at any Barnes & Noble store. (Barnes & Noble members can also get a free case with purchase of the Tab A Nook.) You can purchase the Samsung Galaxy Tab A Nook at BN.com and in Barnes & Noble stores nationwide.
