  • Q: Does the eReader screen light up, like a computer screen?  (2 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerNOOK features a 6”E ink® Vizplex™ electronic paper screen that reads like a printed page. Instead of a backlit screen like you see on a computer monitor, the E ink screen reads just like paper, even in bright sun. This has the added benefit of extra-long battery life since the E ink screen uses less battery power than a backlit screen, so you can read for days. If you do intend to read NOOK in dimly lit rooms or at night, there are a wide variety of booklights available for you to customize NOOK and help light your reading experience!

    • Best answerThe display is e-paper, not really suitable for web and email. While it does have a web browser, it is low resolution and slooooow. Books and the few installed games, yes. Email and web, no.
