Barnes & Noble has launched a new addition to their range this week, announcing the arrival of their new Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight. A new variation on their Nook Simple Touch e-reader, that is now equipped with 8 LEDs embedded into the reader’s top bezel edge, providing users with the ability to read their Nook Simple Touch in the dark.
Apart from the added GlowLight LEDs little else has been changed with regards the e-readers specifications. Both illuminated and non-illuminated versions of the Nook Simple Touch are fitted with a 6 inch e-ink display, 802.11n Wi-Fi, 2GB of internal storage and a SD card slot for expanding storage when needed.
Barnes & Noble explain that the new Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight will last around a month on a charge with wireless turned off, being used for around 30 minutes of reading a day with the GlowLight switched on, or 2 months without using the GlowLight.
The Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight is expected to starter shipping in May and will be available to purchase for around $140.
