Hi all, thanks for the great community so far on the Touchpad, I've found everything from overclocking, best case reviews, and most recently, pairing my Android motorola phone with the Touchpad.
Might I ask if there is any available bluetooth profile which allows the Touchpad to tether a bluetooth internet connection to the phone?
I don't intend to use the Touchpad as my primary voice/text device, that's what my smaller pocketable phone is for.
I do, however, want to use my Touchpad as a daily information consumption driver, which means I would like to have an "always-on" internet device which I can pull news feeds, surf the internet from. Ideally, this would be a 3G device. But as the Touchpad has no 3G, the next best thing would be a battery-saving bluetooth connection from my phone.
Wifi tethering is an option, but battery draining and would not last more than a couple of hours.
Anyone can help shed light on this? The main "pairing" thread on bluetooth deals with texts/sms and voice calls, while I'm more interested in internet data tethering via bluetooth.
