Nook GlowLight Takes on the Kindle Paperwhite for UK Release

By Gerald Lynch on at

It's taken it the best part of a year a year to launch in the UK, but you'll finally be able to pick up one of Barnes & Noble's Nook GlowLight eReaders on our shores from today.

Able to hold 2,000 eBooks with its 4GB of storage, the backlit E Ink reader weighs just 175 grams and has a soft-touch back cover finish available in a variety of colours. The highest-resolution Nook eReader at 6-inches and 212 ppi, it's Wi-Fi only, with a store offering 3 million titles.

Available from stores including Argos, ASDA, Sainsbury's, John Lewis and Foyles, it's priced at £89. That's a fair bit cheaper than even the £109 Wi-Fi-only Kindle Paperwhite, if you're not already trapped inside Amazon's increasingly-wide ecosystem.
