Barnes & Noble today announced the new NOOK GlowLight Plus, featuring the company’s largest E-Ink screen to date.
The waterproof NOOK GlowLight Plus has a 7.8” screen optimized for reading at home or on the go, 8 GB of storage space, and Barnes & Noble’s “glowlight” technology for easy reading day or night.
The Glowlight Plus eReader is exclusively available in stores only starting Monday, May 27, and online starting Wednesday, May 29, for just $199.99, with 10% off for Barnes & Noble Members.
The NOOK GlowLight Plus is designed with a soft-touch finish that is easy to hold and page-turning buttons on both sides of the device for right or left-handed use. Barnes & Noble’s eReader lighting technology has adjustable settings for a cool white color during the day and a warmer tone for bedtime reading.
A battery will keep the eReader working for weeks on a single charge. NOOK users have a vast library of eBooks at their fingertips, including more than one million books under $4.99, with titles for viewing and purchasing on BN.com.
The new E-Ink device joins Barnes & Noble’s lineup of eReaders and tablets, all of which are complemented by NOOK mobile app for iPhone and Android.
