Barnes & Noble's partnership with Samsung continues with the Galaxy Tab S2 Nook. And, as you've probably guessed, it's simply Samsung's recently announced Galaxy Tab S2 jam-packed with Nook apps. The 8-inch tablet hits Barnes & Noble stores today for $400, though if you've got a B&N membership you can also knock another 10 percent off that price. It's still sad to see the book seller move away from its own tablet hardware, but you could do a lot worse than the Tab S2. It's an incredibly thin and light tablet with a bright quad HD screen (our full review is coming soon). The Tab S2 Nook fills a premium slot for Barnes & Noble, whereas last year's Tab 4 Nooks are more budget-friendly at $150 and $250. You won't really gain much with the Tab S2 Nook variant -- you get three free books from a selection of 20 titles, along with three free magazines and $5 worth of credit. But really, it's a tablet meant for people who are more used to strolling around B&N stores than comparing Android tablets online.
