Barnes & Noble is the largest bookseller company with the most retail outlets in the US, operating no less than 627 stores. In addition to various books, Barnes & Noble is also selling souvenirs, toys, games, music, including a number of gadgets such as tablets and e-readers that can access all digital reading content.
Ten years ago Barnes & Noble launched the NOOK, an Android-based eReader that presents a six-inch e-ink screen and Wi-Fi and 3G connections. Slowly, the company expanded its NOOK line, including through collaboration with Samsung to provide the Galaxy Tab “NOOK”. And early this year, the company introduced the NOOK GlowLight Plus variant.
There are two mainstays in the new e-reader. First, the GlowLight Plus NOOK offers the widest e-ink screen that Barnes & Noble has ever offered. Second, the tablet is also equipped with a waterproof design, so you don’t need to worry about taking it anywhere. And as the name implies, this device is equipped with glowlight technology which ensures a comfortable reading experience both day and night.
The NOOK GlowLight Plus has the appearance of the previous Barnes & Noble e-reader, and to be comfortable to hold for a long time, manufacturers apply a ‘soft-touch finishing on the surface.
With glowlight lighting technology, the users are welcome to adjust the color of the screen. For example, you can make the display glow in white when you want to read during the day and then turn it into a more warmer color at night.
The internal memory of 8GB inside allows the user to store quite a large collection of readings, then a large capacity battery there plus the efficient consumption of an e-ink screen ensures the NOOK GlowLight Plus can stay on for weeks.
The NOOK GlowLight Plus is planned to be marketed this summer and will be available for $ 199.99, and by spending another $ 5, its user can get access to more than one million books.
