Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight

PC Magazine
21 February 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).

  • Cons: Малое количество форматов, поддерживаемых «из коробки»., Сложности с покупкой устройства из России.
