Does anyone know if the Nook with 3G and wifi will work to download?

For the Nook you CANNOT purchase new books when you're outside of the US (but you can use wifi download ones you've already purchased that are in your online queue).

For the Kindle you CAN purchase new books on Amazon, but you have to download them to your computer and then transfer them to the Kindle using the USB cable. That's what we do and it works just fine.

um...... how does Nook know where you are? I really don't think that is possible - well not yet anyway.

I think if you have a US credit-card address, you are in the US as far as they are concerned and you can buy from them.

I've attempted to download Nook books, both here and other countries with mu US card. No luck... Downloading Amazon and iBooks works well wirelessly. I have no experience with 3G and purposely didn't get a 3G iPad cause of where I reside.

I have no problems buying books on Amazon and having them download to my Wifi kindle without using USB cables or downloading to the computer first.

I suspect it is an IP address issue, rather than a billing zip.

You could probably make it work using one of the various VPN programs (like Hotspot Shield) -- which essentially changes your IP address to an address in the states.

My oh My, how things have changed over the last 10 years!
I remember on my first visit in 2000 how a couple expats,one in front of Crazy Canuks bar would sit reading with a small table full of used books for sale. I was also suprised when a youngster rode by on his bike and his cell went off.
