Essentially the Palm Mobile Hotspot feature turns your Palm Pre Plus into a MiFi, which is huge. I'm a Verizon BlackBerry owner now and I absolutely love the tethering feature. For $15 extra per month I can connect my laptop via USB to my BlackBerry and get 3G internet access anywhere. But the cable is a pain and I can't use it to get my iPod Touch online. A MiFi solves this problem but who wants to sign up for an extra account and data plan when you're already paying for voice and data on another phone! The Palm solution is ideal - turn your smartphone into a WiFi hotspot. I've been on the fence about what device to upgrade to from my 8330 Curve. I was thinking about the Droid, but didn't like the keyboard. Then figured I'd stick with BlackBerry and get the Tour (or Tour2 if it comes out soon). But the Palm Mobile Hotspot announcement might just have sealed the deal for me getting a Palm Pre Plus on January 25th.
