It looks like Barnes & Noble’s tablet production business lives to see another day, thanks to Samsung, which will adopt the Nook-specific ecosystem and integrate it into a co-branded Galaxy Tab 4 Nook.
The budget alternatives to the high-end Galaxy Tab Pro trio and Note Pro 12.2, dubbed simply Galaxy Tab 4, have just gone official, looking eerily similar to their predecessors and keeping things humble in the hardware department.
Samsung’s oft-rumored future Galaxy Tabs sporting Super AMOLED displays are likely inching closer to their formal debuts, with various form factors ranging from 7 to 10.5 inches.
Despite recent reports, there might be more than four new Samsung tablets looming large on the horizon, as another one has just cleared the FCC, carrying a model number not associated in any way to previously rumored Galaxy slates.
An FCC listing and fresh report out of Korea seem to further clear the air on two of four unannounced Samsung tablets expected to land in Q1 2014: the Galaxy Tab 3 Lite and an unnamed 10.5-inch Super AMOLED unit.
Samsung never sleeps, that much we’ve always known about the Android kings, and the first three months of 2014 shall prove it once again, as the Koreans are rumored to unveil four, count’em four new tablets.
