    I'm thinking about buying a Desire on 3 in the UK and wanted to know if I could turn it into a wireless hotspot and use its 3G signal to power another device - like an iPad?

    Anyone know? Or am asking a bit too much from it? I think I've seen it on Nokias in the past...

    Cheers

    Not sure if it is possible at the moment but i know the upcoming (Q3 of this year) firmware upgrade "froyo" android 2.2 will bring that particular feature.
