Any Word on Nook Glowlight 2?

I remember reading a while ago that Microsoft invested some money into Barnes & Noble. I have an older Nook that's starting to wear down on me. It starts restarting when it reaches half power and burns up the rest of its battery. I'm looking into replacing it and unless B&N is preparing to release a model to compete with the Kindle Paperwhite, If not, I may jump ecosystems because the Paperwhite is just such a nice device. I've used one for a little bit and it blows the Glowlight out of the water. I also prefer the way the Kindle feels in the hand compared to the latest versions of Nook.
