Barnes & Noble NOOK Simple Touch

Last updated: Apr 9th, 2012.

The Nook Simple Touch (or Nook 2) is the first full-touch, eInk e-reader in Barnes & Noble's lineup. The new Nook features a 6-inch black-and-white display, WiFi connectivity, and access to B&N's large library of eBooks. While not an Android tablet per se, the Nook Touch does run on a modified build of the OS.

While some industrious folks have managed to port a more full-fledged build of Android over to the Nook Touch, the device is better suited for its original purpose with no audio support and a lack of 3G connectivity. As an eReader, the Nook Touch ranks among the best, offering features not found on Amazon's Kindle, and comes in at a competitively low price.
