Barnes & Noble has teamed up with Samsung yet again to bring us a new NOOK branded tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK. This new device features Samsung’s familiar design language on the hardware front, while providing the same software experience that’s normally found in NOOK tablets. It comes with a special non-slip, fabric-like material on the back of the tablet, which should make for a comfortable, secure grip. It also comes with a 9.6-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800. It features a 5MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front camera, 16GB of on-board storage and microSD expansion up to 128GB.
On the software side of things, the Galaxy Tab E NOOK comes with NOOK Profiles, so each member of your family can have their own customized reading and entertainment experience. Parents can also set up profiles for their children with kid-friendly NOOK content. For the most part, the software experience will be very similar to what’s offered in other NOOK devices. The E NOOK does come with Samsung’s great Multi-Window feature, which is definitely an added bonus.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK is being offered for $249.99 from Barnes & Noble’s website. Especially considering the specs, this probably isn’t the best $250 you could spend on a tablet, but it may be a decent option if you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy.
