Backlight and E Ink display give the best of both worlds
Barnes & Noble has announced the official US pricing for the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight eReader. This eReader is notable because it has an integrated backlight allowing users to read in the dark without an external light source. Traditionally the inability to read in the dark has been the big downside to E Ink displays.
Barnes & Noble is selling the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight $119 in the US. The tablet weighs under 7 ounces and despite the backlight is one of the lightest tablets on the market.
