Handling

Given that previous Barnes & Noble eReaders that this unit is based off of are very light, it's not surprise that the added weight of a few LEDs doesn't really weigh it down any more: the unit is very easy to hold. The contoured edges and grippy bezel allow you to easily hold your eReader with one hand or two, and you can easily control your eReader with the IR grid touchscreen, or by using the hidden buttons on the front.
