belated. Barnes&Noble Nook GlowLight 4e - budget reader for Far Abroad

I missed the May announcement of the Barnes & Noble readerNook Glow Light 4e. I noticed it only now, when a full review appeared on the network (in English). However, perhaps even better. The review clarified some characteristics that the manufacturer officially prefers not to advertise.

Barnes&Noble Nook GlowLight 4e is a downgrade of the Barnes&Noble Nook GlowLight 4 reader released at the end of last year. There are few differences, but they are significant.

  • Four times less permanent memory - 8 GB instead of 32 GB.
  • Below the screen resolution is 212 ppi instead of 300 ppi.
  • The screen backlight has no color temperature adjustment.

The rest of the devices are identical. Including size and appearance - so they have accessories in common.

About the characteristics.

Classic black and white ink screen. Six inches. Resolution is average, 758×1024 (212 ppi). There is a backlight.

Touch screen, of course. But not a single sensor. There are also physical buttons for turning pages.

The brand of the chipset has not been officially announced, but those in the know say that this is a highly specialized (for reading needs) Allwinner B300. Xiaomi loves to use it in its Chinese readers.

RAM 2 GB.Flash memory is average, 8 GB. By the standards of readers, on which you can only read something. And besides, only fiction, this is quite a normal amount. There is no support for memory cards.

The battery (according to the review) has a typical average capacity of 1400 mAh. You definitely don’t have to charge the reader every day. More likely once or twice a month, hardly more often.

Other. There is single-band Wi-Fi, Type-C and Bluetooth. Supported formats - only PDF and EPub.

The Barnes&Noble Nook GlowLight 4e costs $119.99 (₽6360). Plus, obviously you have to fork out for a case - it is not included in the package.

(The older model, Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight 4, cost $149.99 (₽7940) at the start of sales, and it costs exactly the same now).
