This large-screen tablet retails for $249 USD and comes with a special free limited-time content offering.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
