No Nook Color 3G
When Barnes & Noble first announced the Nook Color and Nook Tablet, many, including some on Business Insider, dubbed it as the Kindle and iPad’s big true competitor.
The Nook Color has the Barnes & Noble brand. It has Barnes & Noble’s giant library. And it only costs $199. But is that enough to dethrone the Kindle and iPad? Probably not. And one of the disadvantages about this tablet is that there is still no Nook Color 3G by now. But the Nook Color is likely to put a dent in Apple’s tablet business and force the company to introduce a cheaper alternative. Now let’s learn how to get 3G on Nook Color and make it perfect.
How to Get Nook Color 3G?

There are two methods. 1, Use the personal WiFi hotspot on your smartphone. 2, Use a pocket WiFi router to get Nook Color 3G.

Go to the settings menu, in “settings”, you’ll see a new “personal hotspot” menu item. Tap it.
In the personal hotspot menu, slide the “personal hotspot” option to “on”.
You’ll note that Apple has allocated the connection a default password which is shown on this screen too. You can either use it (as each iPhone 4 gets a different random password) or change it to something you can more easily remember by tapping on it.
