This is the newest e-book reader from Barnes & Noble — the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight (official full name). The specs are the same as the previous generation’s — 6-inch E Ink Pearl touchscreen display, same internals, same size and same chassis — but is actually lighter, at 6.95 ounces vs. the older generation’s 7.48 ounces. GlowLight is simply a special patent pending technology that consists of scattering/spreading the screen’s LEDs up top with an anti-glare screen protector to uniformly spread light across the top of the Nook Simple Touch’s screen — basically meaning it can be clear, crisp, and bright in any light condition, including at night. It will launch in early May for $139, which is a very competitive price to other e-book readers, namely Amazon’s Kindle. It is available for pre-order now.
