    I'm seriously considering picking one of these up to tinker with & learn the Android OS, but was wounding if anyone has tethered their NC to their smartphone to use on the go. I dont remember if the NC has Bluetooth or not (thinking not), but either via BT or USB cable would be fine with me. Rooting / customs ROMs are fine, obviously I have no intention of leaving it in it's factory state. So can it be done?

    You can thether via wifi. Bluetooh is not currently enabled though there is a chip on board. Not sure that I have seen anybody tether via USB yet.

    I recently rooted my Droid Incredible so that I would have WiFi Tether capability. It works. This post is through my phones WiFi Tether. Pretty cool.
