The Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight is only $139 and Barnes & Noble is accepting pre-orders starting today. The company is expecting the product to ship and arrive in stores this coming May. The new key feature of this tablet is the front-lit screen called GlowLight. The new Nook emits a glow that is different from most traditional backlighting. The battery life has been cut in half, but it is still decent overall.
Inside of the Nook Simple Touch is a TI CPU, 2GB of storage, and 7-inch E Ink display. Barnes & Noble developed the GlowLight internally. The GlowLight is toggled on and off with a little N button at the bottom of the e-reader.
