Barnes & Noble wants to prevent you from reading on the iPad with its new reader


Apple’s iPads are great at all sorts of things, but they’re not particularly good as e-readers, probably because they’re not that. Amazon’s Kindle is a particularly good e-reader, and now it has new competition in the form of Barnes & Noble’s Nook GlowLight 4e.

Designed to be a cheaper version of the existing GlowLight 4, this new deal will set buyers back $119.99 and they can pre-order it now. For your money, you’ll get a 6-inch, 212 ppi E Ink display, according to The Verge’s report. It’s powered by USB-C and has 8GB of internal storage, which is fair, if not revolutionary. The product is more expensive than the Kindle’s $89.99 starting price, but it has a slightly better screen, so there you have it.

One thing LowLight 4e can boast about its competitors is the addition of old-fashioned page-turn buttons, which Amazon discontinued some time ago. The best Kindles Amazon currently sells are swipe-and-tap, which may turn a lot of people away. For those, the GlowLight 4e might be the best option.

However, these people will have to wait a bit for their new e-reader to arrive. Barnes & Noble says it will start shopping June 7 in any color you choose, as long as it’s black.
