Barnes & Noble is now officially offering the Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, a new tablet that was first announced back in June. The device is a spin-off of Samsung’s existing Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 tablet, but with Barnes & Noble software and services pre-loaded. It’s a new move for the bookseller, which used to sell its own NOOK-branded Android-powered tablets.
The device will offer more than $200 of free content, Barnes & Noble said on Wednesday, including the books The Wanderer, I Am Number Four and Freakonomics, in addition to free 14-day trials of 12 magazines, $5 of NOOK Store credit and single episodes of Veep, Hannibal and Orphan Black. We’re not quite seeing how that really adds up to $200, maybe the magazines are expensive, but at least you’re getting some pre-loaded content.
Barnes & Noble is selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK online and in stores now. The device ships with 8GB of storage and will set you back $179 after a $20 instant rebate, which is the same price as the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0.
