Samsung and Barnes & Noble introduce Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK 10.1

Samsung and Barnes & Noble have now introduced the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 as a follow-up to the 7-inch model.
October 22, 2014

Soon after the release of their first tablet/e-reader hybrid, Samsung and Barnes & Noble are back with a bigger iteration of their first. This time dubbed the Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK 10.1, it aims to offer a bigger screen size, and that’s about it.

The new tablet is priced at $300 (after a $50 mail in rebate), and comes with $200 worth of free content from the NOOK store. Users will receive an episode of “The Newsroom”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, and “The Octonauts”, as well as four best-selling e-books, and choose up to four 14-day free trial subscription from 15 select magazines. The companies’ first tablet, the Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK, will also receive the $200 worth of free content, so long as you’re a new customer.

As for what’s under the hood? The specs of the 10.1 and the 7-incher very similar. Both screens have a 1280×800 resolution, 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, 3MP rear-facing camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 1.5GB of RAM. As the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK is going for $169.99, it’s very difficult to understand why anyone would want the 10.1 variant but we suppose some people are willing to pay the premium for more screen real estate.

The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 is up for sale in Barnes & Noble stores and online starting today. Does the bigger version of the tablet have you interested? Let us know your thoughts!
