Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight

Posted on April 13, 2012

Barnes & Noble unleashed its latest e-book reader. The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight may appear very similar to its previous model, down to its insides, until you turn it on.

The device features a front-lit screen called GlowLight, producing a glow that is a bit different from the usual back-lit displays. GlowLight makes it easier for your eyes to read on the screen, although it cuts the battery life in half.

While the original Nook Simple Touch could last up to two months without charging, the newer version–if GlowLight is turned on–has a battery life of up to a month. The GlowLight can be toggled by pressing the Nook’s small N button on the bottom of the device.

The new ereader features a Texas Instruments CPU, 2GB of storage, and 7-inch E-Ink display, much like the No-Glowlight version.

The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight is available for pre-order starting today at $139. The gadget is expected to ship and hit retail in May.
