Welcome to another edition of the Good e-Reader Drop Test Series! Today we round off the entire line of Nook e-Readers and see how the new Nook Glowlight 2013 holds up! The one interesting thing about this e-reader is the rubber that surrounds the unit and the overall design change from previous iterations. How does it stack up against the prior models and does it survive?
In today’s drop test we drop it from the three foot mark, which is the average height in which you mean to put it in your pocket or bag and accidently drop it. We then drop it from the five foot mark on its back, side and directly on the the screen.
