The Barnes & Noble Simple Touch with GlowLight price has been slashed by $20 to keep pace with the launch of the Kindle Paperwhite. Both e-book readers are now on level pegging in terms of pricing, with the B&N device coming ad-free, while users will have to shell out an additional $20 to get rid of the ads on their Paperwhite.
With the company’s standout lighting technology and weighing a little under 7 ounces, the e-reader can be considered desirable. The display is uniformly lit up and users can even control the amount of light on the screen easily. It has a soft touch back making it convenient to hold in one hand and a memory card slot giving it extra storage capacity.
For reading ease, it comes with the company’s exclusive Best-Text technology which grants users the liberty of adjustable fonts. The reading experience is made better with features like touch to look up words and users can even highlight sections. There is also a huge collection of material available for the platform – over 3 million, the company says – which can be downloaded using the built-in Wi-Fi.
And every reader wants to be able to read practically whenever they want. According to B&N, the e-reader can go about a month with the GlowLight on, without having to charge up again. More than 2 month’s worth of power is attributed to the device with the light off.
The Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight price has been brought down to $119. It comes without ads and there is an AC power adapter included in the box.
