Here’s a cool idea. Thanks to new software from Tap Root Systems, you can now turn your phone into a Wifi hotpot, assuming you have the right model of phone and a phone that supports 3G and has WiFi capabilities. You end up using your phone as a proxy sharing your HSDPA or EVDO connection to one or many phones. The free version only lets you connect one phone up and it doesn’t look like the software will be available to consumers, but I still think it’s a brilliant idea.
It would be great if you can walk around sharing your Internet connection, whether you’re out and about, or at home, skulking behind your roller shades. One thing is for sure. If you’re going to use this, make sure you have an unlimited data connection.
