If you’re a fan of Barnes & Noble’s Nook line of e-readers and tablets, there’s a new option to tempt you this fall. The Galaxy Tab E Nook is a 9.6-inch slate that offers all of the perks of the bookseller’s digital library in a Samsung package. While the front features a familiar-looking Galaxy design, the back is covered in “a non-slip fabric-like material” to ensure you’re able to keep a good grip during long reads. Inside, there’s 16GB of built-in storage that’s expandable to 128GB via mircoSD to store your books and other items. Unfortunately, storage is about the only info on the gadget’s internals the announcement reveals. Like previous Nook by Samsung releases, this one is more than just an e-reader, allowing you to watch movies, stream TV shows and browse the web with Android apps.
Speaking of browsing the web, Samsung’s handy Multi-Window feature handles split-screen duties so you can multi-task with ease. And if you need to take a photo, there’s 5-megapixel rear-facing and 2-megapixel front-facing cameras to take care of those. This Nook also comes pre-loaded with Microsoft Office and touts up to 12 hours of continuous video playback before needing to recharge. Ready to take the leap? The Galaxy Tab E Nook is available now for $250. If you act before November 7th, though, Barnes & Noble will let you trade-in “select” Nook, Kindle, iPad and Samsung devices for up to $200 credit towards that purchase.
