Barnes & Noble Releases A New Nook-Branded Samsung Pill
Alas, poor Nook! I knew him, Reader: a pill of infinite jest, of most wonderful fancy: it hath borne me into the library a thousand occasions; and now, how abhorred in my creativeness it’s! my gorge rims at it.
The Nook as we knew it’s now a rebadged Samsung pill and the newest within the household is the Samsung Galaxy Tab E Nook 9.6″ Pill, a tool that options an ordinary Android implementation with somewhat Nook software program thrown on prime.
The brand new gadget is $249 and has a 9.6-inch display with a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU with 16GB of storage.
The Nook has fallen far in its lengthy life. Initially aimed squarely on the nascent Kindle, the Nook was fairly superior again in 2009 with an e-ink display and intelligent LCD strip on the underside to point out e-book covers and different information. The 2 readers have been in direct competitors for a variety of years however in the previous few the Nook line – and Barnes & Noble itself – have confronted a downturn that appears surprisingly dangerous for the guide behemoth.
