Mobile Broadband on HD+?

I am thinking of buying a Nook HD+, however we use usb mobile broadband for our internet. I know the HD+ doesnt have a usb port, but is there any other way of being able to use mobile broadband with the HD+?
Thanks

Maybe, if someone made a bluetooth mobile broadband adapter. You'd need to check with your provider for that though. If they don't offer one, then you've pretty much answered your own question I think. It's a USB mobile broadband solution and the HD+ doesn't have a USB port. I'm not aware of any way to interface a USB device to an HD+.

The only other way that I can think of would be if you could somehow hook the USB mobile internet modem to a router. Then you could just connect the HD+ using normal wi-fi. I don't know enough about mobile broadband to know if this is even feasible but, somehow, I doubt it.

You can physically connect a USB device to the HD+ using a USB Female-Female coupler (such as http://www.ebay.com/itm/290923812039...84.m1439.l2649) in conjunction with the BN-supplied USB cable. But in order to use the USB-attached device you will also need driver software support in the OS for that device-type. CM10.x ROM kernel has built-in support for some USB devices: I've successfully used USB flash drives, keyboard, and mouse with my HD+ running CM10.1 (on SD card), you can browse the XDA forums HD+ threads (e.g., http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2307585&page=6) to see what other USB devices are supported.

Folks have done this using a combination of some particular router models and (free) aftermarket router firmwares such as Tomato-USB or DD-WRT, you can browse TomatoUSB/DD-WRT forums for more info.

Mobile Broadband on HD+

Most mobile broadband providers have some type of device for connecting multiple devices. I use Verizon and I have a mifi. We can connect up to 10 devices with no problem. If you are looking for a mobile broadband router for a device you already have, I would recommend http://www.3gstore.com

They are very knowledgeable about mobile broadband and have many different options.
