We weren’t terribly fond of Samsung and Barnes & Noble’s first tablet mashup, but it seems at least a few people were. If you happen to fall into that category, congratulations — that odd couple has something else that might be up your alley. The new Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 is technically the largest Nook ever released (only because Samsung already did the heavy lifting with design and production) and once again it’s basically a stock tablet with BN apps like Nook Library and Nook Shop sprinkled into the mix for good measure. Everything else — from the 1.2GHz Qualcomm chipset running the show, to the 10.1-inch display running at 1280×800, to the full eye-searing load of Samsung software tweaks — is a well-known quantity so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into. On the plus side at least, the Nook-ified version of the Tab 4 10.1 costs the same $199 as the bog-standard version (after instant rebate, at least) and comes with $200 of sweet, sweet content gratis. Interest piqued? You can pick up yours starting today, but you should only do so after thinking about it really, really hard.
