The Nook Simple Touch is a 6-inch eBook tablet that was released by Barnes & Noble in late 2011. It received positive reviews for its thin, ultra-light and compact design which enhances portability. Users were very happy with the performance, particularly the speedy page refreshes. However, because the device is more of an e-book reader than a tablet, it lacks several common tablet features including 3G connectivity, cameras, apps and games. Regardless of this, the Nook Simple touch is a reasonably priced tablet that guarantees great reading experience for every reader.
