Today the Nook line of tablets only lives on as a modded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4
The Nook Color was priced cheap to lock you into B&N's e-book ecosystem, but it wasn't hard to hack into a $250 full-fledged Android tablet
The Samsung version of the mid-ranged device that Barnes & Noble is pinning its tablet future on, the Galaxy Tab 4
It's easy to forget, but Barnes & Noble's Nook Color was, in a sense, a "Kindle Fire" before the Kindle Fire ever was. Amazon's bookselling rival launched the first budget 7-in e-reader/tablet hybrid in late 2010, a full year before the 1st-gen Fire hit store shelves. Well, fortunes change, Nook tablets weren't exactly smash hits and today all that's left of B&N's tablet strategy is a new partnership with Samsung.
