Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Glowlight gets its price sliced down

The Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Glowlight just had a $20 chunk taken off its price tag. The eReader is now being sold in the US at $99 through nearly 700 Barnes & Noble retail stores as well as through its official site. The company has not yet disclosed the reason for this drop in its retail value, but fingers can easily pointed towards rumors about a new rage of eReaders waiting in its stables to be unveiled this fall.

Calling the new price of the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Glowlight an ‘unbeatable value,’ company president, Michael P. Huseby continued that it is aimed at those seeking ‘unparalleled’ and ‘pure’ reading experiences no matter where they are and what time of the day. The Glowlight feature on this tablet possesses the ability to illuminate its screen with a soft light that doesn’t bother the eyes much when reading in the dark. And the brightness that it generates is even customizable. Weighing in at about 7 ounces, this product is said to be the lightest Nook ever.
