Hands On: Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch With GlowLight | News & Opinion |

"The retailer today unveiled the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight, an upgraded version of its existing Nook Simple Touch, which is our current Editors' Choice for touch-based ebook readers. What's interesting is that it wasn't done with an actual backlight, because with E Ink, you can't have one. Instead, the new model contains a small series of LEDs embedded within the frame."
I would pay the extra $60 and get a Kindle Fire . It does so much more than just an ereader .

That's great Al! Unfortunately my iPad is impossible to read outside.

This is an old thread but relevent today as well.

I am looking for an tablet reader that works well in bright and sunny environments. I want it for books but mostly to read news papers and news sites. Idealy it would work with organizers such as Feedly Any recommendations?

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
