Nook GlowLight from Barnes & Noble

Barnes & Noble has released a new Nook eReader the GlowLight, that is designed to take on Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite. Debuting just before the holiday shopping season, the Nook GlowLight features a “6.5 inch eInk Pearl Display eReader with a backlit screen.” The reader can support several formats including ePub and PDF files and B&N states it can store of up to 2000 books in it’s memory, and boasts 8-hours of battery life.

The GlowLight will set readers back $119 with no ads. The Kindle PaperWhite is the same price with ads, $139 without them.

Reviewers at CNET seem to like this eReader saying, “the biggest enhancement Barnes & Noble has made is to the integrated light — the GlowLight is now significantly brighter at its highest setting, looks whiter, and displays more evenly across the screen. On top of that, Barnes & Noble has completely eliminated the flashing you typically get from e-ink-based e-readers.”

While the reviewers do like the product, they aren’t sure if it will be enough to upset the king of eReaders, Amazon’s Kindle.
