    Nook color vs Nook tablet

      Does the tablet run off cell phone towers or do you still have to have WI available?  This is the only thing keeping me from upgrading.

          You need wi-fi but you can always tether to a portable wi-fi hot spot, if necessary. Sorry.

              The only way around needing a Wifi hotspot to connect too. Is to buy an ereader with 3g ability. Then it would be tied to your personal 3g phone account. And connect anywhere your phone can.

               

              Out and About I can scan for other Open Wifi networks and connect that way. But you have to know where and where you can't get Wifi connections when wanting internet access.

                  You can also tether to your cell phone if your cell phone allows it (it doesn't have to be a wifi hotspot to do so).
