Barnes & Noble teams up with Samsung for its newest Nook tablet

It's no secret that Barnes & Noble has been trying to save money
by offloading its tablet development efforts to someone else, but more
than a few people expected that "someone" to be Microsoft. Not quite.
The bookseller revealed today that its (first) tablet partner is none
other than Samsung, and that the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook they've been
working on will launch in August. The impression that BN's statement
gives is that these aren't just existing Galaxy Tabs that ship with the
Nook app preinstalled, but we're digging further to see what exactly
sets this thing apart from the rest of Samsung's wares. For what it's
worth, BN hasn't completely given up on selling its own Nook
devices -- the existing Nook with GlowLight will still be on offer,
though we have to wonder how that might change if this mashup with
Samsung takes off.
