A little over two months ago, Samsung and Barnes & Noble announced that the next Nook e-reader would be a co-branded Galaxy Tab 4. Today, both companies began sending out invitations to a media event on August 20th that will take place in New York City. The two organizations will use this gathering as a platform to show off the next generation of Nook hardware, while further discussing their partnership.
While this event could easily be a warmup for Samsung’s Unpacked event on September 3rd in Berlin, it’s possible that the South Korean electronics manufacturer and the America’s largest retail bookseller could have a few tricks up their sleeves. Whatever the case, we’ll have more details in less than a fortnight.
