Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 Nook goes big-screen

The new 10.1-inch device launches with an introductory price of $300 and includes over $200 in Nook content.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook now has a larger screen size to go with the grand expanse of its name.

The co-branded Android tablet now comes with a 10.1-inch screen option, following on from the 7-inch tablet that kicked off the collaboration between Samsung and Barnes & Noble earlier this year.

Priced at $300, the 10.1-inch device comes with free access to more than $200 in Nook content, the companies announced Wednesday. Customers will receive four bestselling e-books, along with an episode each of "The Newsroom," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," and "The Octonauts." They'll also be able to choose up to four 14-day free trial subscriptions from a selection of 15 magazines.

The big-screen Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is available now at Barnes & Noble bookstores and online.

The $200 bundle of Nook content is also available for free to new customers of the 7-inch tablet, the companies said. That smaller device is priced at $170, after a $30 "instant rebate."

Barnes & Noble and Samsung announced their hardware partnership in June, effectively ending the bookseller's foray into hardware design. While the original Nook tablets and e-readers were generally well-received among reviewers, they failed to capture enough attention (and customers) to continue to be produced in-house. Now Samsung provides the hardware, and Barnes & Noble its customized Nook software.

One question with the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is what kind of shelf life the "introductory" price of $300 has. In an e-mailed statement to CNET, a Barnes & Noble spokesperson said only that the company has "not announced anything at this point" on future pricing.

Samsung did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the pricing issue.
