    Barnes & Noble hasn't had much luck competing with Amazon's Kindle line of e-readers, its Nook tablets selling poorly enough to prompt an announcement from the bookseller in June that it was spinning off the whole division. That hasn't stopped the company from actively trying to better the line, though; it'll still sell the e-readers in stores even after the split is complete, and it's delegated manufacture of new Nook devices to Samsung. The latter company joined with Barnes & Noble this morning in New York City to announce the new Nook. Technically co-branded as the ...

    Barnes & Noble has been selling its Android-powered Nook tablets since 2009, in which time we've seen them mature from simple e-ink based models to those with 1080p displays. Lately, though, things have slowed down, and 2013 brought us only a single new Nook – and another e-ink model, at that. Had the Nook brand stagnated? Well, even if it has, it looks like it's ready to get some fresh blood, as we learn today of a new arrangement between Samsung and Barnes & Noble that will see the release of co-branded Galaxy Tab Nook tablets. The first such tablet is due this August, a ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through the recently leaked image of the HTC One X+, which was sporting a T-Mobile logo at the top.

We also go through the sad news that Texas Instruments is abandoning the smartphone market, which we're sure will end-up being sadder news for them down the road. We then end today's show talking about Nokia's recent info-graph where they ...

    Microsoft and Barnes & Noble settled their legal disputes and the Redmond-based company invested hundreds of millions in a Barnes & Noble subsidiary back in April; in June, when we had no clue of Microsoft's Surface tablet plans, we thought that an upcoming Microsoft slate will be the fruit of some sort from the B&N collaboration.

Latest rumors on the interwebs talk about a new Nook to arrive late this ...
