Which Android Phones have Hot-Spot capabilities?
The fragmentation on the phones is so major.
So many devices and no real means of comparing and contrasting specs...
Can anyone give me a list or point me in the direction of phones that have a break down of the features currently on android, especially those that list whether or not current or future devices have a hot-spot feature and which carrier they're on?

Pretty much any rooted device can have wireless tethering, or usb tethering.
Hotspot is a different story, that's a carrier charged service and should be listed on the carrier's site.A little obsessive...

I *think* hotspt/tethering is an OS build-specific feature. So, using that as a premise, only phones with FroYo and above (or rooted) can tether.
More accurately, to be able to tether wirelessly, a device must have FroYo... this is what I understand.

My MyTouch 4G has mobile hotspot capabilities, & they're free as long as you don't abuse the service. If you use it too much (not sure how T-Mo defines "too much") then you'll start getting charged for it.Everyone, everyone, stop fighting! Look unto me! I possess the blue flag!

My nexus one out of the box has tethering capabilities and after a year heavy tethering I haven't been charged not one penny more.

What I don't get is if you tether they charge (set ammount) to have one device at a time using it. They charge (set ammount that seems to not be any more than for tethering) for hotspot which you can connect several devices. By their own logic they should be charging for every device connected to the hotspot.
Hope I didn't just give them any ideas lol.
