Bookselling giant Barnes & Noble has just released its latest Nook e-reader, the Nook GlowLight 4e, and it sees itself as an excellent competitor to Amazon’s Kindle e-readers. It’s an exciting entry into the often-slow world of eReaders, and includes some much-desired features.
The Nook GlowLight 4e is available here for a reasonable price – $119.99. While that may sound expensive, it’s priced right between Amazon’s cheapest Kindle and its premium Kindle Paperwhite. Plus, the GlowLight 4e doesn’t bother you with ads like many Kindles do. The Glowlight 4e is the “light” version of the company’s GlowLight 4 e-reader, which was released last December. It costs about $30 more and offers more storage, a better screen, and longer battery life.
However, the new GlowLight 4e comes with 8GB of storage, giving plenty of room for all your favorite books and more, and a 6-inch 212ppi E Ink display that’s both glare and scratch resistant. And while you can read it in broad daylight, the GlowLight lighting feature also ensures you can enjoy your digital books on your couch.
Barnes & Noble doesn’t specify the exact battery capacity, but insists you can “read for weeks on a single charge”. And once the battery dies, you can recharge it pretty quickly thanks to the USB-C connector (get that, micro-USB!).
Best of all, the GlowLight 4e – wheeze! – Has physical buttons on both the right and left bezels for turning pages, something neither Kobo nor Amazon eReaders offer! No more swiping or tapping the display only to be frustrated because it didn’t register your gesture properly. However, those who don’t mind flipping the screen on the display still have this feature.
You can also load your own eBooks onto this eReader. If you’re looking for an affordable, feature-packed new eReader for all those great books you want to read this summer, the GlowLight 4e will be hard to beat! It’s available to pre-order now and will ship on June 7th.
