Nook Simple Touch Release Date and Price, $139 & June 30th

Generally speaking a product’s life cycle includes one of additional features and more bang for buck.  The Nook Simple Touch is anything but that.

It costs $139 and includes a 6-inch e-ink touchscreen.  Unlike B&N’s other Nooks, there is no color screen or Android OS.  It’s a simple as pie e-reader with a hefty feature set for the money.

Expect a 2-month battery life from a single charge.  That will of course vary with use and this is B&N’s claim, not ours.  The 6-inch touchscreen has 50% more contrast than the first Nook and it weighs just 8oz, less than most standard paperback books.  You can store up to 1000 books (2GB, add a microSD card for more) at a time and even lets you borrow books from your local library.  There is currently only a WiFi version, and there is no word if a 3G version will come to life.

You can preorder the Nook Simple Touch today with an expected launch date of June 30th.
