New glow-in-dark Nook with built-in light 'may help save marriages'

Washington, Fri, 13 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, Apr 13 (ANI): The largest book retailer in the US has announced a new version of its Nook Simple Touch Reader that has an adjustable glow light built right in, making it possible to read in the dark unobtrusively.

The new Nook by Barnes and Noble will hit stores in May and will cost 139 dollars, which is about 40 dollars more than the original Nook, LA Times reported.

Users of the new Nook can turn on the light by pressing down on the N button at the bottom of the device and holding it for a few seconds. Soon they will notice a gentle light filling the screen, making it possible for them to read but keeping the ambient light at a minimum.

Users can even control the intensity of the light by touching the screen.

The easy-on-the-eyes gray e-ink format will remain the same. Battery life shouldn't be affected by using the light. In a release, Barnes and Noble said the new Nook will be able to keep its charge for a month.

According to the retailer, a gentle and built in light was one of the most requested features by users since it launched the Simple Touch Nook device.

In a survey conducted in March, Barnes and Noble found that 42 percent of people surveyed said they or their partner have relocated to a different room to not disturb the partner who wanted to sleep, and said this was the best way to "keep the peace".

The survey also found that 42 percent of respondents had gone to sleep annoyed because their partner was reading with the light on. (ANI)
