    Hello all, newbie here. I have the Rezound, which I love, and use PDAnet to do a wired tether to my netbook so I don't have to pay for home internet, which has been working fine for over a year now (used to have the Dinc). However, my netbook just died and I'm trying to figure out if I should replace it or make the jump to a tablet. My only concern is if its possible to do a wired tether to a Nook tablet or Ipad, since PDAnet doesn't work as a mobile hotspot on HTC phones. I'm afraid it won't work with the Nook tablet because its an Android OS, not Windows, and I don't know anything about the Ipad's OS.... Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Here are the few avenues you can take..

    1) Root your phone and use a proper wifi tether.

    2) Pay for Mobile Hotspot

    3) Buy a tablet that supports BT tethering. There are plenty

    4) Buy a tablet with it's own 3G/4G connection.

    You are right. Without rooting solutions for tethering to the Rezound are a bit limited. WiFi is adhoc, which is a problem. Not having a PDA net component for the table is an issue.

    Thank you, I had a feeling rooting was going to be the best option, I'm just a bit leery of my skills being up to par to attempt it, but I may have to because I am a poor grad student! :blink:

    Wait until after ICS rolls out. Landscape might charge for things like FiFox etc.

    It's not as bad as it sounds. Take a look at the guide in my sig. Also remember that as long as you don't S-OFF, it's really really really hard to brick the Rezound.

    ipad or windows tethering with onlive desktop is pretty good solution for windows based smarttabs. It is cheaper then dedicated wi-fi connection.
