I missed my oppurtunity to trade in my Nook during the holidays, so I was wondering if there's someone out there who has a Simple Touch and would rather have a Nook with 3G built in. The 3G feature is extremely useful as I'm sure most people are aware, but right now, I need better battery life over convenience. Does anybody want to trade with me?
Please email me @:
if you are interested.

There's some advantage to having both (as I do): Eg, you show up for jury duty, and find that the jury waiting room has no WiFi (some do, some don't). You buy a book w/ the 3G model and start reading. Later, when you get to a place that has WiFi, you download the book onto the Touch and continue.
If you sell your 3G model and then later change your mind (as I did), 3G models are sometimes hard to find. You can often find NSTs on Craigslist in like-new condition for $70 (I found mine for $65, in the box and never registered).
Note that B&N seems to be occasionally discounting Touches (eg, the recent eBay sale, offering refurb Touches for $20 more, on a refurb Nook Color sale for $129).
2 Nook Touch (one Ltd. Ed.): B&N 1.2.1 rooted; Dell Venue 8 Pro: Windows 8.1
2 Nook 1stEd/3G: B&N 1.7.0 rooted.; Acer Iconia A500: Android 4.0.3 rooted;
Nook Color: B&N 1.4.3 rooted; Samsung Galaxy Tab2 (7.0"): Android 4.2.2 rooted
Customer loyalty is earned, not commanded or deserved, and easily lost.
Never suspect intent where incompetence will do.
