WiFi only Nook eBook Reader Visits The FCC?

Well, what do we have here? In a recent FCC filing, it seems that Barnes & Noble might be considering coming up with a version of its Nook eBook reader without GSM connectivity. While the FCC ID for the original Nook was BNRZ100, this one is listed as BNRV100 and the reports mention that it’s a device “without WWAN”, hence the lack of a cellular connection. If the lack of a cellular connection means that the device could be sold for a much lower price than its current $260 asking price, it’ll be interesting to see how many folks decide to save a few bucks and go for this option. Is the inclusion of a cellular radio important to you, and would you be willing to pay more for it?
