NOOK GlowLight 4e: Alternative for Kindle

Barnes & Noble has dedicated itself to presenting the new NOOK GlowLight 4e readers, which arrive as an even cheaper choice for lovers of digital books, with a compact gadget with amazing functionality and a monochrome display, just half a year after the arrival of its NOOK GlowLight 4 ebooks.

We're looking at a tablet that measures 155.2 x 120 x 8.2 millimeters and weighs 170 grams, with symmetrical panels wrapping around the entire screen.

The same front-lit 6-inch e-ink screen as the original model, with a touch screen panel and several physical buttons on the sides of the frames to aid navigation and simple activities like changing pages.

However, the resolution of this screen will be reduced slightly, to 212 dpi in this scenario. While both models will include an LED backlight for the screen, the GlowLight 4e will be missing the night mode, which allows you to change the color temperature and avoid blue light.

Furthermore, its integrated internal storage will be reduced to 8 GB, of which only 5 GB will be available for electronic books.

The NOOK GlowLight 4e will retain the same Wi-Fi 4 connectivity, as well as support for reading files in EPUB, PDF, and Adobe DRM formats, and the existence of a single USB-C port for both batteries charging and computer connection.

However, these concessions will allow you to decrease its price to a ridiculously low 120 dollars, while also providing certain benefits such as the arrival under a single model without integrated advertising.

However, we're not sure if it's worth the $30 savings above the base model, which is nearly identical in functionality and price to the Amazon Kindles.
