Hack Reportedly Turns Nook Into Web Tablet
While some lucky early users really like the Barnes & Noble Nook and some aren’t quite as enthused about this V1.0 device, this will I’m sure catch quite a bit of attention. Some developers on the nookDevs forum have reportedly discovered a hack to turn the eBook reader into a web tablet with free 3G access.
While we don’t condone breaking EULA’s and the like, this hack doesn’t look like it is one for the faint of heart or less steady of hand. You’ll have to void your warranty by cracking the case,Â and follow several other steps to make this happen.

it’s nice, but useless because it’s an eReader with an eInk display which has a too slow response time to deliver a pleasant browsing experience.
Else it’s funny to see what’s possible, however, the hardware isn’t made for this.
Maybe in a year, with color eInk display which have faster response times this makes sense, however, at the moment, it’s just a gag.
