SHARE Samsung debuts new Nook tablet with larger screen

NEW YORK — Device maker Samsung and bookseller Barnes & Noble are introducing a new larger-screen Galaxy Tab 4 Nook tablet two months after the first version was announced.

Samsung and Barnes & Noble said in June they would team up on the devices and the first-co branded Galaxy Tab 4 Nook debuted in August for $179 with a 7-inch screen.

Now, the company is offering the tablet with a larger 10.1-inch diagonal screen ahead of the all-important holiday season for $299.99. The tablets are competing in a crowded field that includes Apple’s iPad and Amazon.com’s Kindle Fire, both available in more than one size.

The Nook offers access to both the Nook app store and Google’s Play store for Android apps. The new Nook will come with more than $200 in free content from the NOOK Store, including a books, TV shows, top magazines and apps.

Both sizes of the Nook are available at Barnes & Noble retail stores and nook.com.
