NEW YORK (AP) -- The Nook is dying: long live the Nook.

Barnes & Noble is teaming up with Samsung to unveil a new tablet that will replace the bookseller's own Nook tablets.

The new device will be called the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook and it will sell the reader-focused tablet at the same $179 price point as Samsung's own Galaxy Tab 4.

The move had been expected; Barnes & Noble said back in June that it would join forces with Samsung to release cobranded Nook tablets this summer.

One new twist: the new Nook will have a camera, something previous versions did not.
