HTC EVO doubling as 4G hotspot during CES 2011
Although CES 2011 doesn't officially begin until Thursday, the first press events actually start today. I've been in Vegas since Sunday and already my HTC EVO has proven to be invaluable to me.
We're staying in downtown Las Vegas and our hotel is one of a dying breed of establishments that doesn't offer in-room WiFi. There's free WiFi in the lobby, sure, but why would I want to get dressed and go down there when I can sit in my room in my pajamas instead?
So I've been using my HTC EVO as a 4G hotspot with one of my absolute favorite root-only apps, Wireless Tether (also known as Android WiFi Tether). I've been using it every night after my baby girl goes to sleep (the only time I can get on the computer both here and back home) and will also use it during the show, particularly when 3G networks are overloaded.
I know that you guys are the last people I need to sing the EVO's praises to, but I had to share my continued happiness with the handset with someone and I think you'd be the ones to appreciate it most.
Even though the EVO is already 6 months old, it's still at the top of the Android game.
