    Certain "Palm" phones have an APP available to turn the phone into a mobile hot stop.

    Does the Storm of the technical specs. for a similar APP to be developed?
    If Yes, is any APP currently being developed?

    "Create a Wi-Fi hotspot wherever you are

    Turn your phone into a 3G hotspot for up to five devices.9 The Palm mobile hotspot app provides broadband Internet access for your laptop and lets friends or co-workers connect at the same time. It’s simple to set up and easy to use. And it’s like getting a phone plus a Wi-Fi router all in one."

    The Storm 1 does not have Wi-Fi capabilities. You would need a Storm 2 for this.

    Just updated my profile. I had to upgrade today to the Storm 2.

    An example:
    If you have a device which has WI-FI.
    You could use your Storm to create the "Hot Spot" to connect that device to.

    I believe that the hardware would support it but it is disabled somehow to prevent 3ed party applications from making your BB into a hotspot. Too bad. I'd really love to be able to do this just like Palm and Android can.
