Barnes & Noble announced today that they are expanding their lineup of NOOK devices with a new 9.6-inch device from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab E NOOK. The new tablet reader will sell for $249.99 retail. As part of the launch, Barnes & Noble is conducting a special Trade-In/Trade-Up promotion that offers a credit of up to $200 towards the purchase of a new NOOK device for customers who trade in certain NOOK, iPad, Kindle or Samsung devices.
Fred Argir, Chief Digital Officer for Barnes & Noble, says:
“We’re excited to give our customers even more ways to experience reading and entertainment with the addition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK and its spacious large display. We’re proud to partner with Samsung to give Barnes & Noble customers a comfortable, convenient way to enjoy their favorite reading, movies and TV shows on a number of devices and sizes to fit their needs. We invite customers to visit their local Barnes & Noble store to learn more and take advantage of the limited-time promotion to trade in an earlier NOOK device to trade up to one of our wonderful new NOOK by Samsung tablets.”
The Galaxy Tab E NOOK features a 9.6-inch display running at 1280 x 800 resolution, 16GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD, comes with a 5MP rear facing camera and 2MP front facing camera, and with Samsung’s overlay, provides multi-window capabilities for multi-tasking purposes and runs a full version of Android. The Galaxy Tab E NOOK falls in the middle of the product line in between the high end Galaxy Tab S2 Nook and the lower end Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK 7.0.
The special Trade-In/Trade-Up program runs through November 7th. Credits received for devices that are traded in can be used toward the purchase of any NOOK device, not just the Galaxy Tab E NOOK. Previous versions of NOOK devices will garner a $50 credit. Other devices from Samsung, Kindle and Apple may result in a credit of $25 up to $200 depending on the device. Customers do have to visit a Barnes & Noble retail location to take advantage of the program.
