B&N's next ereader will have a 7.8" screen.

I don't yet have all the info on the Nook Glowlight Plus (B&N sent out the press release, but they have not updated their website), but I can tell you it is waterproof, and has 8GB of storage, a color-shifting frontlight, and also*page turn buttons. And according to the FCC paperwork, it also has a headphone jack, and was tested for Wifi and Bluetooth.

It's going to be in stores next Monday.

That sounds like a very nice device. I'm one that doesn't want a 7.8" screen. But I'll still want to look at the device as I generally really like the design of Nooks.

It's funny they're reusing the Glowlight Plus name.

It's not funny; it's sad. Why confuse the issue? Are they too cheap to pay for a new trademark?

Also, who submits a press release for a new product without photos? Weird.

That's a very nice price on a reader that size and it sounds as if it's loaded with all the options as well.

They made a list of things amazon gets right and another one with things amazon gets wrong. Then the wrong list got put in the things to do stack.

Seriously? The Glowlight Plus is the place to take a stand? The iPad, Microsoft Surface, Kindle Paperwhite and Kindle Oasis names are used repeatedly for different products. But Glowlight Plus is where it becomes sad?

As a veteran NOOK user, yes, it makes me sad. YMMV

A marketing juggernaut, these guys.
