BOOKSELLER Barnes & Noble has slashed the price of its Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight ereader to below £50, no doubt to challenge the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo Aura.
Barnes & Noble claims that at just £49 the Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight is now the cheapest ereader with integrated lighting in the UK, beating the prices of Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite and Kobo's Aura alternatives.
Jim Hilt, Barnes & Noble MD said, "No other ereader in the UK anywhere near this price has an integrated light, sits comfortably and lightly in the hand and has a battery that will last up to two months.
"It's an unbeatable value for one of our best-loved and most highly acclaimed products, making now the perfect time to choose an ereader for yourself or for your favourite reader as an early Christmas present."
The Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight features a 6in e-ink screen, complete with an integrated backlight for comfortable reading in the dark. There's also 2GB of internal storage, built-in WiFi connectivity, a microSD card slot and 3.5 hour charge time. There's also access to the Barnes & Noble store, where there are around 2.5 million books available. The device is also compact, measuring 12mm thick and weighing just 109g.
The Nook Simple Touch Glowlight is available from a number of retailers including Argos, Asda and John Lewis.
