Barnes & Noble’s new Nook ereader is cheaper but with tradeoffs

Barnes & Noble is still in the ereader game, and is going after fresh recruits with a much more affordable NOOK GlowLight 4e.

This new model (opens in new tab), which is a follow-up to last year’s GlowLight 4 (opens in new tab), drops the price $30 to a more attractive $119.99. Still, the savings do come with a performance cost.

The gap between the GlowLight 4 and 4e isn’t all that wide. For starters, the new model still has a 6-inch E Ink screen that is resistant to scratches and annoying glare. The ‘GlowLight’ in the name refers to GlowLight Illumination which is the backlight that is powerful enough to support reading in bed without an overhead light or to counter the bright light of the sun, according to Barnes & Noble.
