    I did search for Kindle and Tether but did not find anything on point (but I might have missed it)

    I recently got a Kindle3 that is WIFI only. I figured I could use the $50 difference to purchase books and/or the lighted case.

    But now I was wondering if there is a way to use my Bold's (9650) 3g connection with the BB in the event I'm somewhere that wifi is not available.

    Frankly, from the size of books that I have downloaded, it would certainly not put a strain on my data limit - books seem to be highly compressed.

    I may go to the Tether.com site and see if they know anything but thought I would ask the experts here. Hope this is the right subforum for a more generic discussion on this issue and to get more eyes looking at the thread.

    Why bother. If you know you are going to be out of range of wifi for a certain period of time, just download an extra book or two before you leave your wifi hotspot.....

    I don't believe that would work. It would work with Android devices that can make their own portable wifi hotspot. I don't think the software on a BB will allow it to be used in that way but then I've never had a wifi enabled BB to mess with.

    The current Blackberry Platform doesn't support AD-HOC tethering. Apples JailBroken iPhones to do have Reverse Tether and Androids do have AD-HOC tethering, not sure about Palm.

    but to answer your question, if QNX allows for SU access and someone has a kernel that will support it, or RIM makes it natively possible i don't see it happening.
