I tried a headset with mic in the nook and it didn't fit. I didn't want to force it in too far and break my nook. The headset Jack onbthe nook is a weak point I see, I have to plug my headphones in at least twice to get stereo output.

If u are rooted and using CM7, you can turn on blue tooth connectivity and use a blue tooth headset to make calls. It does require though that you be registered with some sort of voice over ip service. There are many to choose from and some are free. I don't believe that you can use a service like google voice yet but there are discussions about that particular service somewhere in the forum (just haven't checked it in a while). If you want to use CM7 to turn on the bluetooth, you need to turn off the wi-fi then reboot the nook. Before turning on wifi again, go into bluetooth settings and activate it, then you can restart wifi. For some reason it won't activate if wifi is already started but once it is going it is ok to use both...
