Nook Simple Touch Now with Glowlights Display

The newest update comes to those e-readers who wait;  since the Nook Simple Touch scraps off its plainness today.

Nook Simple Touch is an Android power-driven device with an 800 x 600-pixel E Ink touchscreen. It uses  E ink tech with a system of infrared beams slightly above its screen surface allowing the pages to turn in just 450 milliseconds. Also, it offers a great variety of reading choices with its LendMe feature allowing users to share books with one another.

This, however, depends on licensing by the book’s publisher. It guarantees undisrupted reading as it comes ad-free. Moreover, its battery life extends reading for up to 2 months based on 1 hour of reading on a daily basis. For its connectivity options, the e-reader has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n functionality and a USB port for charging and linking on a PC.

Alongside all the superb features this device offers the readers, it carries with it a negligible weakness. According to the grapevine, Barnes and Noble think it’s about time to complicate their very own Nook Simple Touch.

A front-mounted LED is to be integrated to light up the black and white E ink screen during hours of darkness -Glowlight. Nonetheless, this integration shall not affect the paper-like quality of the device.

However, it should be noted that these glowlights may possibly affect the $99 Nook e-reader’s current battery life.
