    I am wondering if anyone knows of a workaround to share the BT DUN connection from my palm 700p to an ipod touch. I know there are a great many people are interested in the same thing.

    So it would seem the only route to go is BT --> WiFi by using some kind of intermediate hardware.

    The closest thing i have found so far is this link

    Wouldn't it be nice if someone developed a small device you could flash with the required info ( or access it through a web page like a router) and it would translate back and forth between BT and WiFi :) Maybe like a little device that was battery powered by a couple AA and was smaller than a power brick for the macbook! :) LOL any takers .......

    If you were going to spend the money for such a thing, and the time to set it up and use it, seems like you would be better served either getting a cell phone that has WiFi and can share it's connection to the touch (there's a handful confirmed to work like this), or just get an iPhone.
