Another quick-hit video since I’m getting ready to walk out the door: I’ve got a 2.5 hour drive to New York City for tonight’s Digital Experience show and I’m not going to worry about WiFi availability. If they offer it, great; if not, I’ll use the Internet Sharing feature in Windows Mobile 6. This feature is also available in WM 5 with AKU 3. You remember this function, right? It’s the one that Microsoft includes which I’m hoping none of the cellular carriers mess with.
How easy is it to use the phone as a modem with Internet Sharing? It almost couldn’t be easier, but if you’re new to the whole "tethering" aspect of using a phone as a modem, I’ll show you just how quick and easy it is over Bluetooth. The same concept applies for a USB cable connection if you’d prefer that method. OK, gotta run….I have a "Long and Winding Road" ahead of me this afternoon. ;)
