The Nook is dying - long live the Nook. Barnes & Noble is teaming up with Samsung to unveil a new tablet that will replace the bookseller's own Nook tablets. The new device will be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook - and it will sell the reader-focused tablet at the same $179 price point as Samsung's own Galaxy Tab 4. The move had been expected; Barnes & Noble said back in June that it would join forces with Samsung to release cobranded Nook tablets this summer. One new twist: the new Nook will have a camera, something previous versions did not.
