    This seems to be a big problem in my search for a tablet.

    I don't have wifi at home and would like to have the option of connection through my phones internet if possible. This way I could take it with me and still be connected.

    Does anyone have any solutions? What ways are there to connect?

    On the road I get internet connection through my droid2. So once I get my tablet... ill just tether it using my wifi app on my phone. Besides that... im not sure what else there is... besides maybe a bluetooth connection?

    I have a cliq with 2.1 so I don't have wifi tether capability. I decided just to get a tablet without bluetooth and figure out a way to get wifi.

    xaueious mentioned connectify and it would have been the perfect solution except my netbook has xp...
