B&N to release NOOK GlowLight 3

No worries. They are releasing the Nook Glowlight 3 this week! The source is Good e-Reader, so you know the info is good as pyrite.

If somehow I could take a Nook ST and get the screen and waterproofing of the Glowlight Plus, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat.

well, it did clear the FCC and the confidentiality lasts only a couple weeks, so it looks like a new model is coming

so from the dimensions on that link, the device is approximately 8.6 inches diagonally. dunno how big the bezels are, but surely this is not another 6 inch reader

I wonder if this new Nook will run on Android, or some version of Linux. We'll find out soon.

Thanks, Nate.

Good luck to it. I still have a soft spot for Nooks even though I don't own a current one and buttons are good.

If this really is the design on the nook Glowlight Plus 3 then it's rubbish.

Can't access that story on your blog. Not sure why.

Edit: It was just my browser at work.

Why do you feel the need to respond to every Nook post with some variation of "it's rubbish"? It gets a little predictable/tiresome.

I've never liked the rounded design and the bezel is huge. Plus it just looks ugly.

B&N could have made the bezel's smaller and the screen larger without having to make the it any larger.

The reader design may not be the sleekest, but to me (and many other people) the rounded corners, fat bezel, embedded buttons and sunken screen of the Nook ST made it comfortable to hold and it could take abuse.

Not sure if this new model has those same benefits.

Very reminiscent of the Simple Touch! Love those bezels and buttons! I'd be getting it if I hadn't moved on from B&N to Kobo years ago.
