Mmm, how about posting a good one?
https://goodereader.com/blog/barnes-...ut-in-december

Not getting this out for Black Friday is a big fail (even if world supply/shipping was the problem).

It's encouraging that it's not Netronix (NTX), so it will be different than the former Glows. 32GB, Bluetooth and USB C brings it up to today's standards. It remains to be seen how the software has or has not changed.

Thanks. I was able to go to the FCC information linked and, when I checked "look at label placement," it momentarily displayed the diagram of the front of the unit, then it disappeared. I was able able to screen capture that image. This Nook is going to have the page turn buttons on both sides, but it's going to be set up more like the No-Touch Kindle Basic or Kindle Keyboard (on the edges). Happy to see that the buttons will remain.

I did this on a Chromebook. It might be possible to get a better screen capture on a regular computer at this link...

You might want to do a search on eink and ghosting. The newer eInk displays with their Regal waveform are less susceptible to ghosting but you will still need to do the white-black-white refresh every so often.
On the Onyx Nova Gen 1, I have an on-screen control to do a full refresh whenever I like. I can also set it to full-refresh, regal, fast mode, and A2. It's kind of cool. I will say though that the background is greyer than a Nook. I'm three generations behind, so maybe they've improved that. But software wise, the control is amazing.

That line on the back, I hope it's a scallop like the back of the ST, instead of a flat back.

At any rate, I really like what I can see of the design.

Wants:
Warm light
Waterproofing
Flush screen

The internal code name is "Gentoo".
The processor is an Allwinner sun8iw15p1, quad core, 1.5 GHz
It's Android 8.1
The fingerprint is NOOK/E60P54_android/E60P54_android:8.1.0/e1404efd13/8.1.1.19_user
It is 6" and the display is Eink ED060KH6C2, 300 DPI, 1072 x 1448, capacitive touch screen
The Adobe RMSDK version is 9.3.1.449, no big jump here.
That "Nook Digital LLC" is a red herring, this is a Netronix device.

It's a shame that BN didnt take care of their software issues. I thought the 7.8 plus was a fantastic piece of ereader hardware. I still think ergonomically they do a better job than the kindles and kobos. If they had fantastic software and tied it into their physical store experience like they used to i think they could get a good chunk of the market back.

The 6" kills it for me. I have the G+ but rarely use it. I'll probably give it to one of my grandkids and drop Nook from the collection.

Well this is interesting. I can't believe that I am still thinking about a Nook, but I am. I like my Glowlight 7.8. I have just been wanting a flush screen. Nothing about the information posted says it's going to be 6" except GoodEReader speculation. We all know how acurate that is. I was planning on buying a new ereader based on the best price on Black Friday, however, I couldn't resist the Costco deal on a Surface Pro. So, I am just going to stick with my Nook for now.

Well didnt someone post here that they saw a spec sheet at BN and it said 6"???( first page of this thread post 14) Maybe they will be releasing a 7.8 down the line...

Mmm, what part of ED060KH6C2 is ambiguous?

OMG, the user interface seems overwhelming! How do you decide between THREE margin selections and THREE line spacings?

Maybe it's going to be the children's Nook. Didn't Amazon target one of their Kindle's at children?
