The latest Nook from Barnes & Noble is a Samsung tablet

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, September 18, 2014

The latest Nook from Barnes & Noble is a Samsung tablet.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    It has been a struggle for the Barnes & Noble book store chain to compete in the e-reader business against the likes of Amazon’s Kindle.   The company’s latest effort is a collaboration with Samsung.   Barnes & Noble’s General Manager for emerging content Jonathan Shar says it’s called the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook…

“Which is really the first full featured Android tablet optimized for reading.  It takes the best tablet features and functionality from Samsung, one of the world renowned technology innovators and takes our reading experience from the Nook and introduces customers to an expansive collection of reading and entertainment content.”

The price…179 dollars and the company is throwing in 200 dollars worth of free content as an incentive.  There’s more info at BarnesandNoble.com.   You can find us, with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
