How would anybody know that? There have been no real world tests of the new nook.
At one page a minute the old nook lasts for 150 hours if read continuously. If the advertising is correct than with the glow light on the new nook should last for 75 hours. A typical tablet lasts for at most 10 hours. Sounds like good performance to me.
