Nook 3G Questions

2 questions about the Nook 3G model: 
1. Is the 3G connection available worldwide? Exp. Could I access the bookstore from China using 3G? 
2. Can I use the 3G connection to go on the web (not using WiFi)?

Not sure about number 1, but I would guess no.  The 3G connection cannot be used to surf the web.

Re: Nook 3G Questions

No, and No.

 

The 3G connection is only usable in the US. It is only usable for connecting to Barnes & Noble.

 

Barnes & Noble doesn't sell e-books to China. Most of its e-books are only available in the US. A small percentage are also available in Canada. None are available outside of the US and Canada.

 

The NOOK is only sold in the US, and is intended for use within the US. If you're thinking about Chinese e-books, the NOOK isn't designed for the Chinese language. There are many inexpensive Chinese e-book readers that would probably suit your needs better.
