We've seen a number of Samsung Galaxy-based Nooks, but now Barnes & Noble unveiled a recent e-Ink reader. And it's waterproof, something that was Kobo's domain until now. Here's the GlowLight Plus, coming two years after the original.

The chassis got a surprise premium treatment, it's made out of aluminum. The classy screen is guarded by fingerprint and scratch resistant polymer (which has been coated against glare, naturally).

The e-Ink classy screen boasts 300dpi of pixel density, B&N's sharpest. The GlowLight Plus uses the company's lighting technology for reading in the dark.

The Barnes & Noble GlowLight Plus is priced at $130 (10% off for B&N members). For comparison, Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite (300ppi, built-in light) is $120 and the flagship Voyage is $200. They aren’t waterproof or with metal bodies though.
