    Last night Twitter was buzzing with this info. It was quite entertaining to follow the progress

    I find it interesting that Nook uses a Sierra Wireless GSM module. Simply for the fact that my company also makes software that works with those modules.

    There it is. Any problems with the nook are Michael's fault.

    And the development continues. I was in the IRC room when a lot of this came out yesterday, but Engadget (my favorite site I love to hate) is finally reporting it:

    So, if the nook has "Fast & Free" 3G and WI-FI, how long till someone will hack it and turn it into a mobile Hot Spot? We camp a lot, and it would be cool to wirelessly access my nook via my netbook and browse the internet...

    Apparently the Nook's two modems are mutually exclusive. When you turn on the wireless it disables the GSM. Unless they can circumvent that at some point, but there's been no discussion that they have any inroads there.

    Also I think all of the Internet use with a hacked Nook at this time is over the wireless - which means the GSM is disabled. That means I'm not sure at this time that anyone knows if you can actually get to sites other than B&N using the GSM. Given that B&N isn't stupid (I hope) I suspect that AT&T has limited the GSM modem to only talking to B&N servers. Not bad when you look at it from most hobbiest viewpoints because you'll get faster connection for your Internet apps over your wireless anyway. Not so great for campers
