    I was actually wondering the same thing myself. I am interested in a 7 inch Acer tablet and wanted to know if I could USB tether my Droid Razr to it.

    Have you looked into PdaNet? - its available via. their site - don't think its available via android market - I would believe the connection would be via. bluetooth dun to your tablet.

    Its not rocket science to Root an android smartphone, but since the Droid Razr is the latest and greatest - follow up / search forums/ research info on the latest in rooting for the Droid Razr. Rooting seems to be the more popular way to be free of VZW Bloatware and open up the WIFI Hotspot feature.

    Cant wait or risk messing your phone up? - the hotspot feature is $20 additional a month - Unlike the required data plan, It is a feature that you could add/delete at anytime - If you do not have an unlimited data plan, when adding the hotspot feature, it provides and additional 2g allowance so if you have the standard 2g plan, when you add the feature - you now have 4g total to freely use as you wish until you decide to remove the hotspot feature.

    Good Luck!

    I tether my Xoom to my OG Droid. As long as you can get the app like PAD Net, EasyTether or Barnacle wireless tether working on the RAZR it should work.

    Not sure about the Tab or Acer but I know the Xoom will work using Bluetoot tethering with the Razr. Root not required on either device, and no third party apps needed. The only thing is that the Xoom requires restarting after each tether (or it won't connect the next time). Kinda of a pain but it is free!!!
