Default WiFi hotspot.

I just want to know, can the nexus 7 connect to a hotspot at all? I have a virgin mobile HTC one V, and before I pay $15 for hotspot, I want to know if it will work. Someone told me my phone sets up an ad hoc network, and the nexus 7 cannot connect to these.

They've offered tethering ever since they started having ice cream sandwich phones at least. The WiFi hotspot app is right here in the app drawer on my one v.
