Tablets are beginning to really flood the market and there are many choices out there. The same trend is also developing with the ebook reader market. More products are now coming out for book lovers.
Recently, Barnes and Noble released the second generation of their Nook reader. The new ebook reader is the book seller’s follow up to their full color Nook reader that got everyone excited. So what does the new Nook Touch Reader offer to the public?
The new Nook Touch eschews a color screen once again in favor of the E Ink Pearl technology that produces paper-like screen quality that is perfect for fatigue-free reading. E Ink Pearl is the second generation of the E-Ink technology that has become popularly used in ebook readers. The screen itself measure 6 inches with a resolution of 600 x 800. The new Nook Touch is very svelte not just with its smaller dimensions, it is also significantly lighter. At 212 grams, it is the lightest ebook reader in the Nook line.
The main reason why the Nook Touch Reader is smaller than its predecessors lies mainly on the fact that it has removed practically all of the buttons from the unit. What remains is basically just the screen and the bezel. It is able to do this because Barnes and Noble has decided to use a touchscreen for the Nook Touch (hence the name). This makes the Nook Touch such an easy unit to use.
The Nook Touch doesn’t have 3G. It only has Wifi, which is not much of an issue though. This is a really good ebook reader and does the functions you associate with ebook readers quite well. You’ll be hard pressed to find a better ebook reader in the market right now.
