The arrival of the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook effectively ends Barnes & Noble's ill-fated foray into hardware design. But what's in it for Samsung?
In its latest quarter, the bookseller narrows its adjusted losses in its struggling Nook digital division by $50 million.
The presentation will detail the companies' efforts in tablets, including their first device -- the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook -- which they discussed in June.
As part of the bookseller's Discovery Weekend, you'll be able to pick up its Nook-branded Samsung tablets for $50 or $100 less.
Plus: an Amazon Fire TV Stick for just $24.99 -- assuming supplies last the morning.
The only catch? The phone is currently out of stock online, though Microsoft promises it will be available for Black Friday.
The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a rebranded Samsung tablet that should please fans of Barnes & Noble's Nook marketplace.
Samsung puts a Nook spin on its Galaxy Tab 4, Sharp launches a smartphone with an eye-catching design, and Uber takes on Google and Amazon with an instant-delivery service.
Mahesh Veerina, president of the bookseller's Nook consumer business, says its strategy for selling Nook devices remains intact, even as the company plans to split in 2015.
