The company previously discontinued its Nook Tablet models back in 2013. The last models were Nook HD and Nook HD+. It then worked together with Samsung to create new Nook tablets that include Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 7.0, Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 and Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK.
The upcoming Nook tablet is not going to be co-branded by the Korean-based tech company. It is solely by Barnes & Nobles.
