Last updated:

Barnes & Noble today expanded its offering of NOOK by Samsung devices and announced a special promotion to help even more customers trade up to one of its newest tablets at an even greater value.

In conjunction with Samsung, Barnes & Noble introduced the new 9.6-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab E NOOK, a large-screen tablet features Samsung’s stylish yet practical design with NOOK’s extraordinary reading and entertainment experience, perfect for the whole family and now available at Barnes & Noble stores and for $249.99 including a special free limited-time content offering.

Barnes & Noble also launched a new Trade-In/Trade-Up limited-time in-store promotion to offer significant credits of up to $200 towards the purchase of a new NOOK by Samsung to customers who trade in select NOOK, iPad, Kindle and Samsung devices through November 7.

“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,” said Fred Argir, Chief Digital Officer at Barnes & Noble.

“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 offers a large-screen viewing experience in a portable design. A non-slip, fabric-like material covers the back of the device for a comfortable, secure grip. The tablet’s clear, bright 9.6-inch screen allows customers to enjoy NOOK reading content including books, magazines and newspapers in both portrait and landscape mode so they can easily switch between the two depending on the content they’re viewing. And the large display is perfect for any member of the family to watch a host of great movies, TV shows, browse the Web and more.

The Galaxy Tab E NOOK features NOOK Profiles, transforming the tablet into any family member’s customized reading and entertainment center where they can access personalized content and recommendations with a quick tap of the screen. Parents will appreciate the ease of setting up profiles for their children with lots of relevant kid-friendly NOOK content for them to enjoy.

Customers can maximize their time and multi-task with ease using Samsung’s Multi-Window, an integrated feature that splits the tablet’s screen to run two apps simultaneously. The built-in 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera and one-click photo and video controls make it easy to snap pictures and capture memories at a moment’s notice. The tablet’s battery offers long-lasting reading and entertainment enjoyment on a single charge. With 16GB of standard memory and expandable microSD memory available up to 128GB, customers will never be without their favorite content.
