Optimized for reading
The Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is "optimized for reading," with a few handy features that'll be familiar to fans of older Nook tablets. Article view will clean up a magazine's layout so you'll get an unfettered stream of text, while Highlights pulls all of your notes into a single convenient location.
A few Nook-centric apps are the primary sign that there's something different about this tablet. But you'll still have full access to the Google Play Store, so there's nothing stopping you from getting books from Amazon, too.
