Barnes & Noble Brings Back The Nook As A Branded Version Of Samsung's 8-Inch Galaxy Tab S2

Barnes & Noble Brings Back The Nook As A Branded Version Of Samsung's 8-Inch Galaxy Tab S2

Ah, the Nook Color. I have fond memories of Barnes & Noble's don't-call-it-a-tablet tablet, if only because that early hardware was a gateway drug to custom ROMs and root modifications. The Nook brand eventually crashed and burned against the twin onslaughts of cheap Android tablets and Amazon's unstoppable Kindle e-readers, but there are still at least a few B&N product managers who want to keep the hardware kicking, as evidenced by "Nook" versions of Samsung tablets.

NOOK Audiobooks App Brings A Spoken Word Selection To Any Android Phone Or Tablet

NOOK Audiobooks App Brings A Spoken Word Selection To Any Android Phone Or Tablet

There's a surprising lack of options when it comes to Android audiobooks. Sure, there's Audible, but its metered subscription service isn't an ideal solution for a lot of people, and other services tend to be light on content. Audiobook enthusiasts now have another alternative: Barnes & Noble. NOOK (ALL CAPS) Audiobooks is available as a free download on any Android 4.0+ device, though I'm betting that only those in the US can actually buy books.

Barnes & Noble And Samsung Introduce The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 , But There's Little New To See

Barnes & Noble and Samsung appear to be getting along pretty well, for the two companies have now unveiled their second joint tablet: the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1. Just like the previous Nook tablet, this is a Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 with some added software tweaks that place emphasis on reading and consuming content from Barnes & Noble. The tablet is available for a launch price of $299 (following a $50 instant rebate), which puts it right in line with the price of the non-Nook version of the slate.

Barnes & Noble Begins Selling The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, A $179 Reader's Tablet That Could Use A Better Display

When Barnes & Noble and Samsung announced that they were going to work together to produce a Nook tablet, it was unclear just what this would entail. Now the tablet is available for purchase, and to be upfront, it doesn't look all that different from any other Samsung product. Setting aside the predictable hardware, we're looking at a TouchWiz tablet with a few Nook apps and a dedicated reading button on the homescreen.

Samsung And B&N Announce The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, Because Sammy Can't Turn Down The Chance To Make Another Tablet

A year ago Barnes & Noble closed the book on its Nook line of tablets, opting to lend the brand out to other manufacturers instead. Now we're seeing the first Android device to capitalize on this idea. Take a guess as to which company decided, sure, I'll make a Nook tablet. That's right, none other than Samsung. When you're already flooding the market with umpteen different tablet variants, what's one more? Dear reader, I present to you the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook.

Barnes & Noble may be bailing out of the tablet race, but that doesn't mean they're giving up on distributing digital content. Today the bookseller that also happens to sell movies, school supplies, electronics, and accessories is similarly expanding its media streaming portfolio. The company is hoping to grow its audience with the release of Nook Video into the Play Store.

Dear Barnes & Noble: bless you, ladies and gentlemen, for making the Nook Color. Without it, the Android modding scene might be less vibrant than it is now.

Barnes & Noble Nook App Updated To Version 3.4: High-Resolution Magazines, Re-Sizeable Book Illustrations, And More

Barnes & Noble may be toning down its Android tablet business, but they'd still really appreciate it if you bought some books from them. To that end, they've updated the Nook Android app to version 3.4, with a focus on better magazine browsing and book images. Now Android tablets with a resolution of 1280x720 or higher (which should be pretty much everything made in the last year, barring some off-brand hardware) have access to bigger, sharper HD scans of magazines.
