Barnes & Noble today announced the new NOOK GlowLight Plus, the company’s first waterproof and dustproof device.
Starting today, NOOK GlowLight Plus is available in Barnes & Noble stores and online at NOOK.com, ad-free, for $129.99 with free lifetime in-store support.
NOOK GlowLight Plus has an advanced design that allows it to withstand water and dust.
Its high-resolution E Ink display features 300 dpi, enhanced contrast and twice as many pixels as NOOK GlowLight. The glare-free screen and adjustable ambient lighting enables readers to enjoy an evenly dispersed light.
Readers can enjoy NOOK GlowLight Plus for up to six weeks on a single charge.
The NOOK Profiles feature, previously available on the company’s tablets, comes to a NOOK eReader. NOOK Profiles transforms NOOK GlowLight Plus into any family member’s own eReader, where they can access personalized content and recommendations with a quick tap of the screen.
NOOK GlowLight Plus is also the first Barnes & Noble eReader to include B&N Readouts, a newly announced feature that brings the company’s bookstore browsing and content discovery to the NOOK digital experience. B&N Readouts leverages Barnes & Noble’s content catalog and bookseller knowledge to deliver a daily selection of quick reads that can be enjoyed anytime and anywhere on the NOOK GlowLight Plus, along with NOOK by Samsung devices, through Free NOOK Reading Apps for Android and iOS devices, and www.bn.com.
