Earlier today we learned that Barnes & Noble and Samsung were teaming up for a tablet called the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. It will be a Nook-branded tablet based off the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 4. In an SEC filing, we've also just learned that Barnes & Noble will will purchase a minimum of one million tablets. That's a lot of tablets. We gleamed a few more details about the upcoming project as well, so read on past the break for more details.
A 8-K filing revealed additional details of the deal between Barnes & Noble and Samsung. In it, we learn that at least one million tablets will be purchased by Barnes & Noble, while Samsung will pony up an undisclosed amount of funding to help market the Nook-branded tablet.
The devices will be branded as 'Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK'. Barnes & Noble has not only selected to use the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 4, but will also use the 10-inch version according to the SEC filing. Each size will come in two SKUs, one black and the other white. The 7-inch version will launch first, with the 10-inch tablet coming about sixty days later.
Barnes & Noble doesn't have to buy all million tablets at once. Instead it just has to buy at least 1,000,000 within the first twelve months after the launch.
