Simple Touch Nook Browser

Did you have the latest Simple Touch Reader by Barnes and Noble? If so you might be interested in knowing that it has a web browser.

The Newest Nook, The Simple Touch Reader has a web browser in side of it's system, and you don't have to root it. Barnes and Noble does not list the browser has a feature. I do not have one but it is said you can navigate to websites using the search bar. Reviewers have been stating that the browser is a little buggy, so I suppose that is why Barnes and Noble does not list it as a feature.

But is this the reason to get the Nook Simple Touch Reader? Black and white screen, with a slow refresh rate at 1 frame per second? Is the Nook cheaper than Amazon, or the Apple Bookstore? I guess if you want a reader, and browser you should get an iPad or Android Tablet.

Nook Simple Touch (ST) is not really comparable to iPad. Perhaps you should read information on the Nook Color.

The Nook ST has an excellent battery life, library lending capabilities, book lending properties intertwined with social networking sites, and weighs less than 8 oz. Much nicer than the Kindle.

I just don't think the Nook ST should be compared to a tablet at all.
