Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight

PC Magazine
19 January 2012
  • Conclusion: An E Ink reader you can use in the dark? Yep. Barnes & Noble delivers the first ebook reader with edge lighting that really works. And it's a winner.
  • Pros: Edge lighting works very well. Slightly lighter than the Simple Touch. Memory card slot and ePUB compatibility add flexibility. Includes AC adapter.
  • Cons: Rubberized bezel attracts dust. Page turn buttons are a bit stiff (although you don?t need to use them, thanks to the touch screen).

Barnes and Noble Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight Review

Good E-Book Readers
10 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight really raises the bar on e-reading in 2012. It is the only device on the market that allows you to read comfortably in low-light conditions. Personally I do most of my reading at night when I am going to sleep. In the past, I needed the lamp to be on and be positioned in such as way that the e-reader was facing the light source so I can read without any shadows.
  • Pros: The ability to read in the dark, Expansive ecosystem of books and newspapers, Lots of options to change your reading experience, Fairly affordable
  • Cons: Most B&N stores are completely out of stock, No internet browser via the Search Menu

  • Excerpt: With an eye towards enlightening night-time, dark hidey-holes and that closet Harry was stuffed into, Barnes and Noble has added LEDs to their Simple Touch eReader, to form the verbosely named Nook Simple Touch, with GlowLight . Hardware-wise, not much has changed outside of the patent-pending technology that provides light over the top of the screen, vs. behind it, as is the case with its fully backlit LCD counterpart, the Nook Color .

Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Reader Barnes & Noble Nook Color

20 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Barnes & Noble New Nook is one of our top picks among ereaders. It has a Pearl E Ink screen with a very well done touch user interface, it’s fast, it supports all manner of ePub with and without DRM, and it’s small and lightweight. The every sixth page turn refresh will please those who hate the flash to black during page turns (you’ll see it only every sixth page), but the drawback is a slightly less white background due to ghosting.
  • Pros: Sharp Pearl E-Ink display, great touch experience, great battery life, small and light.
  • Cons: WiFi shortens battery life considerably, some light ghosting of text.

Barnes & Noble Simple Touch Nook Review: This Is The Ereader You Want

2 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Barnes & Noble’s Simple Touch Nook is not a reinvention of the ereader in any way. It’s not even an evolution. It’s a refinement, and a very good one at that.

Обзор электронного ридера Barnes & Noble Nook The Simple Touch Reader

2 October 2013
  • Summary: Электронная книга Nook The Simple Touch получилась достаточно интересной. Качественный и приятный для рук корпус, удобное чтение, сенсорный дисплей E-Ink Pearl и достаточно низкая цена - лишь малая доля достоинств. По сути Nook The Simple Touch - это первый сенсорный ридер со встроенным Wi-Fi на Android с возможностью превращения в планшет (пусть даже полезность планшета с экраном e-Ink является весьма сомнительной).
