    I've looked through the leaked manual and Verizon's site, but cannot determine if the Xoom will be able to act as a wireless hotspot.

    Has anyone seen anything about this?

    Once you root it, I can't see why it couldn't be used that way...

    I heard it will have a wireless hotspot. Can't remember where I read it but no doubt it will.

    It's in the leaked manual, how true it is we will have to wait for a legitimate manual, or launch day. "Hotspot: Share your internet connection and become a hotspot for your friends. Touch Tethering&portable hotspot >Portable Wi-Fi hotspot."

    Looks like no one answered this yet- the answer is yes. Also, they don't charge you extra for the mobile hotspot, like they did for the Droid2, x etc., just comes out of your usage. So I dropped the mobile hotspot on my Droid2, figure I'll use this instead.
