Barnes & Noble will begin selling its new Samsung-built Nook tomorrow in its chain of retail stores immediately after the device is unveiled at a press event, the DigitalReader reports.

News of Barnes & Noble’s partnership with Samsung first emerged back in June, with Samsung giving the bookseller its first new tablet refresh in nearly two years. The new Nook will essentially be a version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 4 that runs the Nook operating system.

It will also be a bit cheaper than the regular Galaxy Tab 4; according to DigitalReader’s sources, the Nook version will be priced at just $179.

Of course, we won’t be able to confirm this until tomorrow’s Nook reader event. Check back on VentureBeat tomorrow for complete coverage of Barnes & Noble’s announcement.
