Nook Touch

NOOK Simple Touch announced with GlowLight for $139 coming May 1st

Barnes and Noble are back with another e-reader for the world to enjoy. Many might now know this, but even the black and white e-readers run on Android. There are multiple hacks and tweaks available but today we have a brand new model to tell you about. The all new NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight. This is a front-lit display as we reported on yesterday, and will be amazing in the dark.

Nook Touch hack enables multi-touch on e-ink

The Nook Color and Nook Tablet get the most attention out of Barnes & Noble's e-reader line, at least from an Android modder standpoint, but many forget that all of the Nook devices run Android - and all have been thoroughly modded. Even the humble Nook Touch has been thoroughly rooted with custom apps and ROMs, though the e-ink reader's hardware limitation prevents some of the more basic Android tasks from being completed. One of those can be disregarded now: XDA members wheiltijohnny and Mani100 have devised some custom code that enables multi-touch gestures for the diminutive e-ink reader.
