Barnes & Noble is still making Nook e-readers?
Apparently. The company's new $129.99 Nook GlowLight Plus is, hands down, the slickest e-reader the company has ever produced. It's also waterproof, which means you can read all the e-books you want in the pool or in the bathtub, without worrying about destroying it.
The GlowLight Plus ditches the plastic back for an aluminum one, which looks more premium and is sturdier. The 6.4-inch screen has a built-in backlighting system for reading in the dark and has a 300 dpi resolution that renders text sharper and with better contrast. The GlowLight Plus is also light (6.9 ounces) enough to fit into inner jacket pocket and not bulge out.
The new waterproofing means the GlowLight Plus can be submerged in up to 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. In addition, the e-reader is dustproof. Barnes & Noble says the battery life will last up to six weeks on a single charge.
There's also more storage for digital books: 2.6 GB of internal storage.
