Barnes & Noble, Inc. today announced its highly-acclaimed NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is now available for $119. As always, the e-reader is available ad-free, with an AC power adapter included in-box.
NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is the most versatile reader ever created, and is the first reader designed to address E Ink readers’ number-one request: the ability to read in the dark in bed and avoid disrupting a significant other. Featuring Barnes & Noble’s innovative lighting technology, GlowLight shines uniformly across the display, turns on instantly and adjusts with just a touch, so customers can control the amount of light illuminating their device, whether in a dimly lit or pitch dark room. At under 7 ounces, NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is also Barnes & Noble’s lightest NOOK ever, even lighter than Kindle’s new competitor to Barnes & Noble’s innovative device. The device’s ergonomic back and soft-touch design makes it comfortable to hold in just one hand.
Like having two Readers in one, NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight doubles as an outdoor reading device, featuring a revolutionary built-in screen protector offering paper-like reading with no glare, even in bright sunlight. The company’s exclusive Best-Text™ technology with adjustable fonts optimizes each letter, so words are crisp and clear. Customers can touch the 6-inch infrared screen to look up words, highlight passages and customize their reading experience by adjusting the font size and style, and experience lightning-fast page turns by swiping or using the device’s contoured physical buttons. NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight provides access to one of the world’s largest digital bookstores featuring more than 3 million books, magazines and newspapers and enables customers to borrow digital books from public libraries as well. The device can hold up to 1,000 NOOK Books and more content using expandable memory.
NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight comes with a power adapter at no additional cost and features a long lasting battery life with over one month of reading on a single charge with the light on or over two months with GlowLight off*.
NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight is available to purchase immediately at www.nook.com or at NOOK Digital Shops™ and displays in one of Barnes & Noble’s nearly 700 bookstores and other leading retailers. Barnes & Noble offers Always Free NOOK Support in all of its neighborhood bookstores, with more than 40,000 NOOKsellers across the country ready to assist customers with setting up their NOOK devices or choosing their next great read.
*Battery tests based on a half hour of daily reading time with Wi-Fi® off, with GlowLight on at default brightness settin.
