Nook hardware hackers turn the device into a Android tablet The multi-stage hack is documented on nookDevs. Part one involves a process called teardown, and this is …
Wi-Fi + 3G + choice_of_OS = ??
Wi-Fi + 3G + choice_of_OS = all_you_can_eat_roaming_hotspot_router

Shouldn't be hard to render the wireless useless
The wireless only needs to be able to access certain discreet landing sites, most of which are probably on the B&N site. Therefore if it is open I doubt it will be for long.

What a marketing opportunity.
P.S. Congratulations to the modders.

Barnes and Noble realized that an Android tablet computer with a dedicated book reader function is a lot more interesting than a dedicated book reader.
Teardown followed by rooting?
Sounds like my recipe for a good Saturday night.
