Barnes & Noble Partners With Samsung

A partnership has brewed between these two forces as the Nook is finally a part of the Galaxy line of Samsung tablets.  Per AP, "The 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will sell for $179, the same entry price of the non-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4."  According to the report, the new Nook has access to both Google and Nook stores and the device will have a camera on both the front and rear.  

Will customers flock to the new device or wait to see what Apple offers in September?  Regardless, this move from B&N to partner with an established brand like Samsung is a smart one.  It should open more distribution opportunities for both and more access to a wider variety of apps and downloads.
