Q. Can I use my nook while traveling abroad?
X Yes, when you travel abroad, you can read any files that are already on your nook. You can connect to Wi-Fi hotspots that do not use proxy security settings, such those commonly used in hotels, and download eBooks and subscriptions already in your online digital library. You cannot, however, purchase additional eBooks and subscriptions.

For book shopping 3G is more than enough. And you don't have to search for the networks, type in passwords etc. - you just power the device on and boom - you can shop.

To me wifi in eBook reader would be great just for browsing the net when you don't have your laptop with you. With the screen size it would be more convenient than using the smartphone.
