In the market for a new tablet, bookworms? Samsung and Barnes & Noble might have just the thing.

After first teaming up last year, the companies on Thursday launched a new co-branded tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Nook. Described as the "the thinnest, lightest, ultra-fast device from the two companies," the 8-inch Wi-Fi tablet has the same specs as the new Galaxy Tab S2, plus a "vast collection of digital content" from the Nook store.

That includes access to more than 4 million books, including bestsellers, new releases, classics, and enhanced titles with special content. You'll also find a large selection of comic books, graphic novels, travel guides, cookbook titles, as well as more than 110,000 children's books.
