But if you're running it through the B&N store using wireless you're out of luck I think. Unless you were able to run your wireless through a dedicated computer that ran all internet traffic through a VPN/proxy...
I get my Nook in about 5 days (live in Australia) so I'll be working on this problem soon. I might see how I can go about running the wireless with an American IP within a rooted Nook.
I haven't tried it. But in a softrooted nook you have a web browser. Has been working flawlessly for the few websites I've checked out.
Still not perfect. But it should be possible, to purchase within this browser on your nook and then download within your B&N library on nook.
One step more than intended, but at least without PC.
