Barnes & Noble and Samsung electronics have sent out invitations to a launch event on Wednesday, August 20 where, they claim, the best of both worlds will come together. Back in June, Barnes & Noble announced that it was teaming up with Samsung in order to develop a new Nook tablet.
Expected to be a Nook-branded version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 7-inch tablet, it will offer all of the features of a stock model but with integration into Barnes & Noble's digital catalog of books, magazines, newspapers and other multimedia content.
The move would allow Samsung break into another potential consumer market while Barnes & Noble can focus its attentions on making content better and more engaging.
When the two companies initially went public about their plans for the future of Nook tablets.
The co-branded Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is expected to be a 7-inch device with 1280-by-800 resolution and will essentially be Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 with Barnes & Noble's Android-based Nook software on it.
A 3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 1.3MP rear shooter, along with 8GB of onboard storage, microSD slot for another 32GB, and a 1.2GHZ quad-core processor should also be found at the device's specification list.
