Weighing only 7.5 ounces, the new Nook features 50% more contrast and is 15% thinner as well as 35% lighter than original Nook.
The device sports a 6-inch black and white e-Ink Pearl display with only one button for power. Lynch boasted that this new version is the “easiest to use, most portable e-book reader ever.”
The feature that garnered the most applause at the media event was that the battery life on this new e-book reader can last up to two months on a single charge based on an average reading time of 30 minutes per day. That means a reader could use the device starting now on a full charge until past the Fourth of July.
