Tim Baxter, president of Samsung Electronics America, speaks Wednesday in New York about the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook, a co-branded tablet that will replace Barnes & Noble's Nook. For the first time, the Nook will have a camera. The 1.3-megapixel camera on the front is on par with what's on other tablets, but the 3.0-megapixel rear camera isn't as sharp as competitors'. The new Nook, which will sell for below $200, offers access to both the Nook app store and Google's Play store for Android apps — the latter was unavailable in previous Nook tablets. Barnes & Noble says it will continue to make and sell its $99 Nook GlowLight e-readers.
