Barnes & Noble has announced the official US pricing of the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight. The eReader will sell for $119 in the United States. This particular Nook is notable for having a backlight allowing users to easily read in the dark and in the light.
Barnes & Noble says that this is the most versatile digital reader ever created. The reader does certainly address the shortcoming of most E Ink offerings, in that we had to have some sort of external light source to be able to read in the dark.
The device weighs under 7 ounces even though it has integrated backlight making it the lightest Nook ever. The device ships with a power adapter at no additional cost and promises long battery life.
“At just $119, our high-quality, top-rated NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is an unbeatable value for customers who are seeking an unparalleled, ad-free reading experience that goes from bed to beach, day or night,” said Jamie Iannone, President of Digital Products at Barnes & Noble. “NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is the first Reader to hit the market with built-in illumination for reading in the dark and includes a power adapter for quick and easy charging. NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is fully stocked at Barnes & Noble stores and leading retailers and available today for customers to enjoy our best-in-class digital reading experience and robust content catalog at an unbelievable price.”Filed Under: Gadgets News
