Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight review

Engadget
24 April 2012
  • Summary: With good reason, when Barnes & Noble was ready to unveil the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight it skipped the pomp and circumstance it usually reserves for Nook product launches. There was no splashy press conference this time out; just one-on-one meeting with members of the press. The company says this was because the GlowLight technology doesn't translate as well in a press conference-type setting.
  • Pros: GlowLight works as promised, Lighter than its predecessor, Expandable memory
  • Cons: Loss of contrast for onscreen text, $40 premium for GlowLight functionality, No 3G option

  • 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.
