Samsung Galaxy 4 Nook
      #46871 - 08/20/14 05:45 PM

Just got an email from Barnes & Nobel for the new Nook...what is the difference from the Galaxy 4...looks like the same specs, same price. Is it skinned is running kit kat...just very odd. Family owes pretty much every nook gen and they all still work. I liked the Barnes and Noble nook look. But it is now gone.

It's the same hardware with some custom Nook apps added. B&N said it was too expensive to keep designing and manufacturing their own hardware, so they've decided to repackage other devices instead. Sad, but I kinda doubt they'll make their own tablets again. It will be interesting to see what they do with future E-Ink readers.
