Samsung Rolls Out Nook-Branded Galaxy Tab
Barnes & Noble and Samsung have unveiled a new reading-focused tablet that will replace the bookseller's own Nook tablets. The 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook will sell for USD 179, the same entry price of the non-branded Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. The move had been expected since Barnes & Noble said in June it would team up with Samsung to release co-branded Nook tablets in August. For the first time, Nook will have a camera. The 1.3MP camera on the front is on par with what's on other tablets, but the 3.0MP rear one isn't as sharp. Nook offers access to both Nook app store and Google's Play store for Android apps - the latter unavailable in previous Nook tablets. While it's possible to install a Nook app on most Android tablets, Nook tablet goes further in offering a home screen with quick links to favourites and recently read books. Reading can be paused to check email or Facebook, and hitting a book icon on the corner of the home screen instantly resumes book. (Agency)
Opera Will Be Default Browser for Microsoft Mobile Phones
Norwegian software maker Opera signed a deal to take over the browser building unit of Microsoft's Nokia mobile phone unit. "We have signed a strategic licensing deal with Microsoft. We are basically taking over the browser building department in Nokia," Opera Chief Executive Lars Boilsesen said. "This means that Opera Mini will become the default browser for Microsoft's feature phone product lines and the Asha phones product lines." The deal will be profitable from the start, he added. "All the current user base will be encouraged to upgrade to Opera Mini and all the new phones will come with Opera Mini pre-installed as a default browser.” In a separate statement, Opera said the licensing agreement applies to mobile phones based on the Series 30+, Series 40 and Asha software platforms.  (Agency)
