Barnes and Noble Galaxy Tab 4 Nook

Barnes and Noble Galaxy Tab 4 NookThe Barnes and Noble Galaxy Tab 4 Nook is a 7 inch modified version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4 7 inch Android tablet.

Barnes and Noble took the Galaxy Tab 4 and turned it into a Nook tablet.  This tablet does not have Samsung’s Touchwiz software, instead it is loaded with Barnes and Noble’s custom software that turns the Galaxy Tab 4 into a fully functioning Nook tablet with all the features of a Nook, plus much more.

This 7 inch tablet with 8 GB of storage begs for the 32 GB add-on SD card.  I’m not sure you could download very many books and other media from Barnes and Noble without immediately needing the additional storage.  In addition to the on-tablet storage, Barnes and Noble will store all of you Nook related content on their cloud for free.  So, if you have good internet contact whenever you are using the tablet, it seems like the cloud is the way to go for storing the Nook stuff.

This tablet comes with several Nook apps about food, fashion, fitness, educational stuff for kids, and games – all pre-installed.  Plus, they will let you have up to $200 worth of free stuff when you purchase the tablet.  With a Nook device, you can read thousands of books, have subscriptions to magazines and newspapers that are automatically available monthly or weekly.  They have many movies and TV shows as well.

Overall, this seems like a pretty good deal.  But, you can get much of this on any tablet just by downloading the free Android app from Barnes and Noble.
