It looks like the FCC has outed an updated version of the Barnes & Noble nook. But all in all it does not appear to be a major change, not yet anyway. So far the listing confirms that the device is a nook and is 3G capable. Its also labeled as BNRZ100-01, which is a change from the original. Or probably more accurately said, an addition from the original which was BNRZ100. Bottom line, it looks like this version of the nook will have a Sierra Wireless MC8201V 3G wireless card, which is touting support for the 850 and 1900 MHz bands. That said, there was also a confidentiality letter attached that requested photos (along with user manual) be held for 180 days. In other words, it looks like either a new or updated nook will be coming sooner than later.
