First Look: Galaxy Tab 4 Nook: Hands-on with B&N's take on Samsung's reading tablet

2:32 /

The Barnes & Noble version of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 puts a new spin on a familiar and affordable Android tablet.

[MUSIC] Hi, I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook version this is a skin version of the Galaxy Tab 4. That product normally retails for $199. But Barnes and Noble is selling it for 179 dollars, with a 20 dollar instant rebate. It really is the Samsung Galaxy Tab four, comes with eight giga bytes of memory, a cloud core processor. 12 80, by 768 resolution. And it has a micro sd card slot. For expandable memory, the built-in memory is only eight gigabytes, about five gigabytes which is useful, so you probably will want to get a micro SD card to expand the memory. It's important to note while this does have the Nook interface on it, it really is a Nook tablet. however, you can access the Google Play store so it is a full fledged Android tablet as well. It also has some Galaxy apps on it, so a little bit of a Samsung flavor to it, so it's got three different worlds on it, but first and foremost, it is a Nook reading experience. That's what Barnes and Noble is pushing. It really does have all those Nook features front and center with access to your Library right on the device itself. There also is still the Nook App Store. But you can access both Nook apps and Google Play apps, and there is a video store, Nook does have a video store. There also is a Google Play video store. For this new tablet Barnes and Noble has enhanced the shopping experience. The scrubbing is a little better. There are channels integrated into the store now. It's much more fleshed out than it was on the earlier Nook tablets. Those tablets will not be upgraded right away. You only get that experience on this tablet. You do have the same access to the User Profiles. You can put your kid's profile as one profile, and your profile as another profile, and switch seamlessly between those two profiles. And this does have Samsung's multi-tasking features built in. So, you could call up, for instance,. The Google Maps app, and I also have another app running on the same screen at the same time. Finally, this is the first [INAUDIBLE] tablet to have a built-in camera on it. It does have front and back-facing cameras. The one on the back is 3 megapixels, the one on the front is 1.3. It also has bluetooth, GPS. So you're really getting the full Android experience with this tablet. I'm David Carnoy, and that's the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. Thanks for watching.
