Barnes & Noble launches the Galaxy Tab E Nook tablet
Barnes & Noble's latest NOOK reading device is not one that uses an e-ink display, but a large-screen Samsung Android tablet that has its advantages. The 9.6-inch Galaxy Tab E Nook edition is a great tool that allows users to enjoy the new entertainment features offered by Barnes & Noble, including videos, magazines, and comic books.
The Galaxy Tab E Nook has the same technical specs as the "pure" version from Samsung - a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm 410 processor, 9.6-inch TFT multitouch display with 1,280X800 pixels, dual stereo speakers, 16 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB, WiFi connectivity, and more. The slate comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office and customers also receive free content and Nook Store credit.
While the new Samsung Galaxy Tab E Nook is available at Barnes & Noble stores and online at Nook.com for $249.99 USD, Barnes & Noble Members receive an additional 10 percent discount. Until November 7, the company also runs a trade-in/trade-up program that offers a $50 USD credit to customers who own select Nook devices and are looking to replace them with a Nook Galaxy Tab E, Galaxy Tab S2, or Galaxy Tab 4.
