This is pretty much hypothetical at this point but I'm curious... Let's say I get one of the Android tablets likely to be coming out in the spring and get one that only has WiFi and no WWAN access built in... I've got a Moto Droid running stock 2.2.1 and unrooted. I know I can obviously tether via wifi if I root the device, but there is also the application PDANet that allows you to tether with your computer via USB or Bluetooth. USB is probably out of the question on most tablets, but is there any way that I would be able to tether the phone to the tablet via Bluetooth?
From what I've read, PDANet uses the DUN (Dial Up Networking) BT profile for tethering, which Android can obviously host, but is there any support in android for BT DUN client mode?
In all likelyhood I will just root (again actually... CyanogenMod almost bricked my phone) and go with that... but I'm also trying to look to the future when I will hopefully replace the Droid next summer and I don't want to become used to WiFi tethering, and then have no option upon purchasing a new phone unless I make sure that whatever I get can be rooted and run wifi-tether.
