No SD card slot.
And only 500MB free for user content--the rest is for the OS and Nook-store books.
Regal waveform yes, Carta no.
Capacitance touch instead of neonode.
Even more locked down than ever.
The new Nook Glow is still running Android 2.1 and it has an 800 MHz CPU, which is undepoweredin comparison to the 1GHz CPU found in the Aura, Aura HD, and the new Paperwhite. And to make matters worse, the new Nook Glow is missing the card slot and page turn buttons found on last year’s model.
Oh, and it has a white shell which will attract fingerprints while making the E-ink screen look gray. This is the exact opposite of Amazon and Kobo, both of which went with a gray and them black shell because black makes the E-ink screen look whiter (this is ereader design 101).
Yes, Barnes & Noble has basically thrown away everything that made the Nook Glow special and better than its competition while at the same time releasing a device that is on par with what Amazon and Kobo released last year.
