Barnes & Noble and Samsung on Wednesday unveiled a new co-branded tablet called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook that will replace B&N's own Nook tablets. The 7-inch Wi-Fi tablet will sell for $179 after a $20 instant rebate, the same entry price of the non-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. The move had been expected, since Barnes & Noble said in June it would team up with Samsung to develop Nook tablets that would be available in August. For the first time, the Nook will have a front- and rear-facing camera. It comes with more than $200 in content from the Nook Store, including three e-books such as "Freakonomics", TV show episodes including HBO's "Veep" and free 14-day magazine trials. It also offers access to both the Nook app store and Google's Google Play store for Android apps. B&N has been trying to turn itself around as competition from discount stores and online retailers toughens, and as consumers shift away from traditional books to digital formats.
