Barnes and Noble today announced NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight, the world's first and only E Ink Reader with built-in lighting. With patent-pending lighting technology, NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight eliminates the number-one problem couples have in bed - having their sleep interrupted, or being prevented from falling asleep, when their partner reads with the light on. Like having two Readers in one, this revolutionary device is the first to combine the most advanced and fastest E Ink display with a precise infrared touchscreen, built-in anti-glare screen for reading in bright sunlight, and an evenly distributed and adjustable light for reading in the dark. It's also the lightest NOOK ever with a long-lasting battery life for over one month of reading on a single charge, with the light on.
At the amazingly low price of $139, NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight includes a power adapter and built-in anti-glare screen protector at no additional cost, unlike Kindle. NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight can be pre-ordered at www.nook.com and in Barnes & Noble stores. The newest NOOK is expected to be in stores and in homes in starting in early May.
