USA based book retailer, Barnes & Noble has shown off a new version of its Nook e-book reader, which it says is 35% lighter than its first-generation model.
The battery has also been upgraded to enable users to read for up to 2 months on a single charge with Wi-Fi off - that's twice as long as the other leading eReader available.
"We set out to design the easiest-to-use, most optimized, dedicated reading device ever created and accomplished it with the All-New NOOK," said William Lynch, Chief Executive Officer of Barnes & Noble. "Touch makes it simple to use, and the beautifully compact design makes it the most portable eReader in its class. Add to that an unmatched battery life, the most advanced paper-like touch display on the market and wireless access to the world's largest digital bookstore, and we believe that for readers of all ages, the All-New Nook is the best eReader on the market,"
The All-New NOOK can be pre-ordered for $139 today and is expected to begin shipping on or about 10th June.
