Barnes & Noble has launched a new Nook GlowLight complete with an improved backlight and double the original storage.
The new Nook GlowLight has not only been endowed with new features but has been given a redesign too.
Nook GlowLight 2013 Features
The Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight 2013 is 15 per cent lighter than its predecessor at 6.2 ounces and features a new soft-touch finish for increased comfort during long reading sessions.
It is also kitted out with an all new “warm-white colour” to differentiate it from the competition and has a silicon trim for protection against falls.
The E Ink display has also been improved with 62 per cent more pixels and next-generation lighting technology for a uniform light across the entire screen, similar to the improvements made to the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2013.
Full-page flashing has also been removed from the new GlowLight, so that page turns are smoother and don’t feature a black page refresh.
There’s a new “Reading Now” section on the home screen, and a permanent navigation bar offers access to search, library and shop.
Barnes & Noble has also introduced new Clip On Covers that attach to the side of the Nook GlowLight and come in a range of colours.
Nook GlowLight 2013 Release Date and Price
Currently the pricing and availability of the Nook GlowLight 2013 is US-only. In America, the eReader is available today for $119, but we expect the device will launch in the UK soon with a price of around £75.
