B&N Leaks the Name of the Next Nook – the GlowLight Plus

Barnes & Noble's next ereader, the Nook GlowLight Plus, will be arriving shortly.

A reader has tipped me to news that B&N has leaked the name of GlowLight Plus on its own website. If you head over there right now and select the Nook dropdown menu, you will see a reference to a new Nook model:

B&N Leaks the Name of the Next Nook - the GlowLight Plus Barnes & Noble e-Reading Hardware

"Nook Glowlight Plus" is very likely a reference to the B&N device that went through the FCC last month.

That device was tested for Wifi and had an estimated 6" screen, but unfortunately I am unable to confirm that the Glowlight Plus is the same device.

Clicking the Glowlight Plus link takes you to the product page for existing Nook Glowlight model, which launched in late 2013. The link will lead to the new device's product page once it officially launches, but at this time we don't know when that will be.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

8 Comments on B&N Leaks the Name of the Next Nook – the GlowLight Plus

  1. I am so excited. I have been waiting to hear this!

  2. It is good B&N is still trying to compete in the ereader market.

  3. Good for them. Unfortunately I just don’t trust my books with them. They don’t know if they are coming or going. Not customer focused in the least and keep making blunders (400 dollar tablet) thats sure to lose them money and keep them in the red.

  4. So, it is an e-ink device, then? Or not?

  5. I wonder how they are coming along in getting their web site to work with Safari? I’ve started buying more books at Amazon because their web site doesn’t work.

  6. The name sounds like a nightlight you’d buy at the Dollar Store.
