Many of you know that the Palm Pre Plus which is currently on sale at Verizon will act as a hotspot for wireless devices such as the iPad. What's interesting about it however, is that Verizon is not going to charge an extra data charge to do this like other carriers for the length of the contract you sign. I'm not certain I want to dive in for the Pre since its future is uncertain (though better now that they've been acquired by HP I guess) Does anyone think that this practice will become more widespread? I know that Sprint's upcoming HTC EVO will have the capability as well as others, but I don't know if they will be charging extra for that service(I'm guessing they will). I've read on other threads how people have jailbroken their iPhones to act as a hotspot -- but that's a sloppy, buggy workaround in my opinion. I also know others are using other portable hotspots, but those are coming with extra, expensive data charges. It seems ridiculous to pay $45 for a home broadband connection, $30 for a smartphone data connection, and another $15-60 for an iPad data connection from AT&T--all redundant data charges. How many others are accumulating enough wireless devices that they will be looking specifically for a hotspot capable smartphone without additiona data charges? I need to eliminate some of this redundancy.
