New software from TapRoot Systems can make a 3G smartphone become a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing you to connect a laptop or other Wi-Fi-equipped hardware to the internet. The software, called WalkingHotSpot, is compatible with Symbian S60 and Windows Mobile smartphones. It will work with both HSDPA and EV-DO, but will allow voice calls to come through while using the data connection only on HSDPA phones. A free beta demonstration will be available for consumers to test soon, but TapRoot intends to sell the software directly to carriers, allowing them to provide it as a service. It doesn't intend to sell the software directly to end users.

This Was my Idea
and has the battery to boot
it will be hitting korea soon
i can not remember what page i say it on
it is very ugly but sports some super stats
Love you scoop, but a little slow on this one
I have to say that phone scoop has always been good to me about info.
But on this one they came up slow. I have been using a wifi router that supports multiple devices for about a month.
I have an 8925 tilt with the wifi router and it works great.
And for what the person says in the other thread, Yes it really does drain your battery.
The tilt is known to have a short battery life as is, but with the router you can consider it NILL
What Taproot Systems did was allow voice to go over the HSDPA network instead of the standard GSM network... it turns your voice into into a data call into a voice call over the NE...
i had not thought of using it for my psp ...
that is a great idea.
what phone are you using
i might be able to get you some cool stuff for it
